IIRC, at the time "Smith, John" was being swapped to "John Smith," (leaving the comma) and "Smith, John Quincy" was being swapped to "Quincy Smith, John." It was pretty obvious that you weren't using that part of the code much and it could use some love (Also, IIRC, you had to fix my one line of code )

I'm sure we'd all prefer you work on the big projects (client-server, pdf conversion, etc.) and let others find a few places in the code that they care about and want to polish. I've worked on both the add books and metadata fetching code, and it really helps to have done a lot of those operations to understand what problems can occur.
