theme('format_name') is a bit weird... why not have theme('name') ?

Oh and this might be a good time to change it so that it uses
drupal_substr() and drupal_strlen() to cut off the username. This would
mean the visual string length before chopping is more consistent.

I've always disliked that I cannot chose which user information is
displayed to the outside world. I often prefer to show "Firstname
Lastname" rather than a often cryptic username. I could of course
change this display in the node and comment functions of my theme, but
then it would be confusing if the same user essentially has another
name in the user search or the admin interface. Therefore I propse to
make format_name a themabel function. Patch attached.
