I'm thinking about creating a 'meta author' plugin.

I think about the following functions:
Create an info-screen about the author (wiki-links, born, died, most recent work, known for, picture)
Create an alternate list (AKA, full name dr. Merry, dr.Merry, Dr-Merry)
Create preferred name (DrMerry - Preferred name == Folder name)
Create different name (Charles Dickens [1812 English author], Charles Dickens [1970 pseudo for ...])

Does someone have interest in a plugin like this.
Has someone been doing something like this, is it possible to build such a plugin for Calibre (0.8) or are there functional problems that prevent it?
