It would be nice to have a quick way to display information about page
author/posters.  The attached patch creates a new 'Author info' block
for the user module, which (if enabled) displays only when a node is
being viewed, showing the user name (as block title), picture,
signature, a list of up to four recent posts (plus 'more' link, if
tracker module is enabled, and user has posted more than four times)
and link to contact author (if contact module is enabled and user is
set to accept contacts).  The general idea: get a feel for the author
at a glance, without having to load the full user page.
