I have been using "Originally-by:" (not Originally-from:) to indicate
content originally written by someone else which has then been
dramatically redone. It seems to communicate, but probably should be
written into a spec somewhere.

It doesn't make much sense to put that after a Signed-off-by: though
(lines are supposed to be in chronological order.)
