It takes a whole buffer but it rewrites only ident lines, so maybe
"rewrite_ident_lines()" (so with "lines" instead of "line").

I don't think "person" is better than "ident" for this, and I think
it's better to use the same name for it in split_ident_line() and the
function we are renaming.

It's true that we are not rewriting the date, so maybe
"rewrite_person_in_ident_lines()".

Thanks,
Christian.
