Not easily for posts that have already been done, although you can do
a mapping in config.php so that future posts all go to the same name.  
Indeed, you can set up the configuration such that authornames are 
selected by address or whatever other criteria you want to choose.

Doesn't exist in beta7, but I've just added the capability for beta8
via the $DiffHost variable.  Indeed, I currently have the default set 
such that hovering over the authors name reveals the IP address in a tooltip 
(you can see this on pmwiki.org).
