Yes, I agree.  In some ways, your mistake (wrong email) is different from a
content mistake in the actual source code.  You are completely right that
content mistakes can be fixed by further commits, but wrong email mistakes
cannot (easily).  I guess that is why the bzr docs have the whoami stuff at
the top of the docs.  But they could be more clear about why it needs to be
done *before* you commit.
