cherry-pick: Suggest a better method to retain authorship
When a cherry-pick failed, we used to recommend setting environment variables to retain the authorship. It is much easier, though, to use the "-c" flag of git-commit. Print this message also when merge-recursive fails (the code used to exit(1) in that case, never reaching the proper failure path).
