At this point, the change's "who" field is limited to one address, so
I think the best you could do easily is to change the code so that it
inserts teh committer there rather than the author.

If you want to dig into the code, it would be great to change that.
Derek Hurley is working on adding more general support for users to
Buildbot, so this may be a good time to make that modification.
