[python-committers] Use hg commit --user?

I do sometimes commit patches written by someone else. I tried to always
add him/her to Misc/ACKS and in the changelog entry (Misc/NEWS). With
git, it's possible to record an author different than the commiter. In
Mercurial, I see a --user option.

Can I use this option to commit a patch written by someone else? Or is
there another option for that?

If I use hg commit --user, is it possible to see somewhere that the
commiter was me?
