Summary:API for uploader/creator/author info?
Description:The API never gives me any sort of explicit uploader name, just e.g. `creator_id="6498"`. This makes it impossible for API users to figure out the uploader names of posts without having to go through some sort of non-API HTTP request (e.g. trying to parse `/index.php?page=account&s=profile&id=1` or similar), but that's both annoying and in fact seems to block curl etc.

It would be cool if you could add a simple API endpoint which gives me an author's name (and perhaps some related statistics e.g. upload count) given an author ID.
