Yep. There was a positive vote (probably more than one actually), and 
since then nobody adds new @author tags, meaning the information is 
really not accurate.

What has stopped us is that we need to keep a track of these to give 
credit. And also show to the world the incredibly large developer group 
we are :-)

Let's for now extract the information in whatever form allows further 
processing (tab-separated or xml). We can then see how to present it 
later. IIRC Bertrand did something for this.
