Commits from darcs and commits from wiki treated as from different users #179

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Edit a page in the wiki using the wiki
2. Edit a page using a test editor and darcs record

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Each change should be recorded as being from the same user - me. But
changes done in the wiki are recorded under my wiki username - greenrd -
which is not the same as my real name - Robin Green.

Some might consider this a feature, or a non-issue, but I consider it a
bug. Either the user should be told to use the same name as they usually
use when they commit to a repository, or the two names should be linked
somehow (not sure how).

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
Latest from git with my patches applied

Please provide any additional information below.
I always give my author information to darcs as the following:
Robin Green <>

and I wasn't aware this would be an issue when I created a wiki account, so
I used my usual username - greenrd.
