Show authorname on hover

Hover over an author to see their name

Other functionality

Shows the author color on hover Supports fast switching between hovers (Doesn't depend on native browser support)

Why did I rewrite this?

I don't really like plugins that depdend on manipulating the ACE inner DOM, rewriting this plugin and using events meant I could still have hover functionality without the risk of running into nasty ACE issues down the line. It also meant that as new authors joined and updated their name I could update hte hovers in real time. Previous attempts at writing this plugin have required a browser refresh to know who authors are, that wasn't good enough for me.
