That's why I think, that all patches should be signed with PGP/GnuPG or
X.509 certificates. And those keys should be signed by trusted CA
authorities like CAcert.org or such (identity check against official
documents, not only valid mail address).

Of course not, I mean, who would take a software seriously with credit
contents like:
Ford Prefect <mail>
Goldfish <mail>

Looks like script kiddie software, crack software or something else.
Imagine movie credits with such lines.

Of course you can have a nickname, and of course you can add it to the
CREDITS file:
Marc "Goldfish" Miller <mail>

Such things you can see in serious credits (movies, games).

Shade and sweet water!
