 It seems odd that we expose theme author emails like this, so we should
 hide it them.

 On Core & Meta Trac they're hidden through the usage of our Notifications
 functionality instead, I'm not sure how we can achieve it for Themes Trac
 but we should endeavour to do something about it.

 Noting that on Core.Trac we're using `[blackmagic] cc.disable = true` and
 that I think the emails are visible because all Authenticated users have
 the `TICKET_EDIT_CC` cap in Trac, where as for unauthenticated users it's
 truncating and only showing the first part of the email address.
