I parse the author field. If someone provides as author
"[[User:Jane023|Jane Darnell]]", I keep 'Jane Darnell' for display and
the associated user id for identification.

In this case, jane023 came from either [[User:Jane023|jane023]] or
[[User:jane023]]. I just grepped for the different names used in Jane

There are of course much more different entries, where you wouldn't
associate the username to the real name. A common error was for users to
upload, then change the username to their real name at both sides of the
pipe, not only changing how it is shown but also the user at which it
points to (in some cases pointing to a different user!).
