I'm currently doing exactly this with the current
infrastructure, with author names of address@hidden and
address@hidden, etc.

If more detailed information were required , it is very
simple to just go :

"monotone cert <thisrev> dev-uname `uname -a`"
"monotone cert <thisrev> monotone-version `monotone --version`

to add any information you want. I'm fairly sure this could
be automated in the current commit hooks - if not, it might
be worth adding there.
