Hi David,

I started doing that before even reading your commit (used less(1) to
look the email from bottom... ;)

I got some idea, but then decided there is no point spending too
many minutes (what was that one 'time management' xkcd again... =D)

anyway, some fun editing the nifty pipeline you write

git ls-files | grep -v -e "$FILE_EXCLUDE" | xargs -n 1 -d \\n | \
    git blame -w --line-porcelain -- | \
    sed -n "/$AUTHOR_EXCLUDE/d; s/^[aA][uU][tT][hH][Oo][rR] //p" | \
    sort -fd | uniq -ic | awk "\$1 >= $THRESHOLD" | sort -nr

If there are more authors or files to exclude, then it is easiest
to just write those out in pipeline, e.g.

grep -v -e 'file-one' -e 'file 2 with spaces' ...

and

sed -n '/author1_ex1/d; /author2_ex1/d; s/^[aA][uU][tT][hH][Oo][rR] //p'

(and, as usual, I always recommend 'set -euf' in shell scripts)
