Comment (by westi):

 I'm not convinced that AJAX magic would help here.

 I think we may need to work on a better way of managing the author <> post
 relationship to replace the author dropdown on the post page and to
 provide filtering by author here.

 Maybe we could do one or more of the following:

   1. Add {{{add_action('filter_edit_posts');}}} into {{{wp-
 admin/edit.php}}} to allow plugins to add extra filters easily.
   1. Add an extra Manage interface for managing Authorship of Posts (and
 Pages) so as to allow us to remove the dropdown from the write post page
 and move the work to a seperate page with more UI space for an intelligent
 system which scales to large numbers of authors.

 Ryan - What size of authorship are we aiming to support well? 100's /
 1000's or authors or more?
