[development] Multiple user aliases - Multiple user node ownership

I've had several requests to: (i) To be able to have nodes that can be
(owned) edited/deleted by multiple users (group posts); (ii) To be able
to post under aliases - without logging into multiple accounts.

Obvious answers: (i) Something nasty with Node Access; (ii) CCK field to
be displayed replacing the the usual user field, trouble of having
reusable or identifiable aliases as well.

(in/sane?) answer: Write module that - (i) Creates a (blocked) user to
register 'nicks' (ii) Links 'nicks' with user(s) 1->1 or 1->many (iii)
uses nodeapi to add 'nick' to node form (iv) adds edit/delete to nodes
that relate to user 'nick's (just skipping and adding different access
control to present node functions).

Just a check if I'm looking the wrong way, or if I'm just hanging out in
the marginal 20% as usual.
