 Currently setting the author for a post is hidden in a metabox away from
 the typical WYSIWYG/save post workflow. The author metabox also looks ugly
 as it's a small select input in a huge horizontal metabox (assuming you
 don't move it inside the sidebar context).

 This patch removes the author metabox and moves it into the "Publish"
 metabox. It still retains no-Javascript compatibility.
