send-email: Add config option for sender address
The sender address, as specified with the '--from' command line option, couldn't be set in the config file. So add a new config option, 'sendemail.from', which sets it. One can use 'sendemail.<identity>.from' as well of course, which is likely the more useful case. The sender address would default to GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT, which is usually the right thing, but this doesn't allow switching based on the identity selected. It's possible to switch the SMTP server and envelope sender by using the '--identity' option, in which case one probably wants to use a different from address as well, but this had to be manually specified. The documentation for 'from' is also corrected somewhat. If '--from' is specified (or the new sendemail.from option is used) then the user isn't prompted. The default with no '--from' option (or sendemail.from option) is GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT first then GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT, not just GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT.
