  Add a way to rename authors properly

With the removal of the redundant data from .mailmap
we lacked a way to rename an author properly. Previously
someone could manually update a name or email in AUTHORS
files and things would "just work" as the .mailmap file would
tell us the old mapping. Now we have removed those mappings
we need a way to easily rename someones canonical data.
This also means manually changing the AUTHORS file is now a
problem.
