Sure, adding a field into ?action=attr is no problem:

    $PageAttributes['cauthor'] = '$[Created by:]';

Dealing with the creation time is a bit trickier, because dates and
times are stored as timestamps and not in yyyy-mm-dd form.
We'd need to handle these specially, and PmWiki doesn't quite have
the hooks in ?action=attr for that yet.
