#47685 reviewing enhancement

Allow developers to filter the authors list on quick edit dropdown

I want to find a way to filter the author list displayed in quick edit dropdown. I basically want to remove some roles of this list.

But there is currently no hook so I have to go through the wp_dropdown_users function, then use wp_dropdown_users_args filter, but this functions is also called on a lot of other parts of the backend, so I have to be sure that I'm only affecting the quick edit query.

So it would be nice to just add a particular filter for this quick edit author dropdown.

@SergeyBiryukov Can this one be moved forward for version 5.3 Beta 1 tomorrow? The patch looks clean. Would this need a small Dev Note as well?
