+1 too

We are still in the process of migrating to EPrints and being able to 
manage authors and author instances was very important for us.

Matthew and USQ were kind enough to let us use their author system and 
it saved us a lot of work and time.

It would really be great that this system could be integrated in EPrints 
and maintained by the community for future versions of the software..
