Documentation: don't link to example mail addresses
Email addresses in documentation are converted into mailto: hyperlinks in the HTML output and footnotes in man pages. This isn't desirable for cases where the address is used as an example and is not valid. Particularly annoying is the example "jane@laptop.(none)" which appears in git-shortlog(1) as "jane@laptop[1].(none)", with note 1 saying: 1. jane@laptop mailto:jane@laptop Fix this by escaping these email addresses with a leading backslash, to prevent Asciidoc expanding them as inline macros. In the case of mailmap.txt, render the address monospaced so that it matches the block examples surrounding that paragraph.
