On repo.or.cz I've hooked up project owner to a link that shows a list  
of all projects owned by the same person.

So, for example, the owner name is passed in and you end up getting  
back links like [1] and [2].  (You can see where this shows up by  
pulling up one of the project summary pages on repo.or.cz such as the  
cgit mirror [3].)

Looking at the new docs for this [4] I don't see an option to filter  
owners.  I see that the owner is passed in as "CGIT_REPO_OWNER", but I  
don't see an opportunity to produce the owner markup.  Is it there and  
I'm just not seeing it?

The repo.or.cz pages also try to make the email addresses more  
difficult to scrape by generating peculiar markup (the  
HTML::Email::Obfuscate package) so conceivably this could be handled  
in the owner filter as well.
