I'm glad that Manning is generally favorable, but I'm unsure about that.  It's
kind of like @author tags, which are discouraged and which Lucene has
agressively removed.  I guess since it's not a copyright it doesn't directly
violate this policy...

However, where do the crediting comments begin and end?  What happens when
pieces of this file get refactored into other files, do the crediting comments
proliferate or disappear?  Shall I start including comments at the top of
files I submit crediting my employer?  How about every other contributor?

IMO, crediting in source code should be strictly limited to copyright and
licensing concerns; for everything else, credit belongs in version control and
the issue tracker.
