Fix for pull 67: Map author slugs to user_nicename #90
Pull 67 was incomplete. Contains wp-admin fixes to complete the move to user_nicename.
Essentially, the hidden field in the wp-admin post edit screen passes user_login to the backend, which then attempts to look up a user by user_nicename. This works in most cases except when users have an email address as a login name, which converts to a url safe user_nicename (e.g. "firstname.lastname@example.org" -> "mailexample-com").
