I have found an interesting solution. In the option for permalinks for WordPress post the admin can specify how the link should appear. Options are in the format of /%monthnum%/%postname%/%author%/ where in this case the month the article was posted is followed by the name of the post and finally the name of the author is added after the domain name. For example:

http://wordpress.liquid.info/10/citing-rather-than-commenting-on-wordpress-articles/frode/

Unfortunately this only shows the first/username and not a real or full name, which would of course be better.

Argh.
