Bug: Automater substitution of "and" with "&" in author field

There does not appear to be any way to insert "and" as part of an author name when adding to the library without this being interpreted as "&" for multiple authors.

For example, one can get free PDF files of government reports by "authors" whose names correctly contain the word "and" such as the "National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine" in which case "Medicine" is not a separate author.

Even trying to change this manually by editing metadata does not work. It makes sense as an import default, but there should at least be a checkbox available when editing manually to disable this.

See "Splitting multiple author names" under Preferences, Tweaks.

ID: authors_split_regex

By default, calibre splits a string containing multiple author names on ampersands and the words "and" and "with". You can customize the splitting by changing the regular expression below. Strings are split on whatever the specified regular expression matches, in addition to ampersands. Default: r'(?i),?\s+(and|with)\s+'
