Re: [PATCH] add myself to authors list for `w3m-bookmark-view-new-session' patch
At first, my special unchanging thanks are due to all contributors for
guiding emacs-w3m development.

I think that it is necessary to treat author fields in the different
manner from recording changelog entries.
Of course, all contributions must be recorded to changelog.
Such changelog entries are testimoinals for contributors.
Contrary, persons who are called as `authors' must be restricted, I
think. Only persons who achieved big and important contributions are
eligible to be called as authors. If all contributors are called as
authors, a list of authors will become longer than code.
