Narrowing the Author column in Magit

<2018-08-11 Sat>
Update for the change in magit-log-format-margin signature (Magit 20180809.1716).

The Org and Worg git repos can be committed to only via ssh protocol (and not https), and for technical reasons, I cannot commit to those repos via ssh from my primary development machine. So I ended up with a flow that involves pushing commits to those repos using my Nexus 6p phone.

Magit is how I git, and I love to primarily work from the ∗magit-log∗ buffer (M-x magit-status, l b). But the default column widths were not optimal on a Nexus 6p 5.7" screen. And that’s what inspired this tweak, which looks great on a regular desktop monitor too.
