[pmwiki-users] Author lookup

Some of my wikis are protected by Apache Basic Authentication. When 
someone supplies the correct credentials, I set their $Author to the 
Apache BA username. This is not particularly helpful if the username 
is something like "nherber" or "user9876".

Is there a way that I can "lookup" a synonym for the name, and force 
that into $Author? So "nherber" might result in $Author="Your 
Favorite Wiki Administrator".
