 Assume there are multiple users with different username, but both the same
 public name.

 The posts/pages list (which is controlled by class-wp-posts-list-
 table.php) will show the Author twice (or more) under the identical name.
 I wonder if it would be helpful to (also) show the real username (in
 brackets) so this can be avoided.

 Compare to when setting an author of a post - it will be there already.

 This ticket is to open discussion if this is useful or not, and how it
 would be implemented in a manner so it's helping information and not
 overload. Thank you.
