#40564 reviewing enhancement

Show user login name in posts/pages list to avoid confusion if identical names exist

Description

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.

My initial reaction is that this feels like plugin territory and we might be better off with a filter in get_edit_link. It seems like it would be an edge case.
