yeah, i used to have both work and personal email accounts linked to
'enh', but when work insisted on work 2FA for any github account
linked to a google.com address, i didn't want to risk getting locked
out of my precious three-letter github account when i leave google.
for consistency in the git log and to keep lawyers happy i always use
the google.com email address for toybox, so enh-google probably makes
the most sense.
