'page creator' is not a role like admin or edit, but simply logging
the original author of a page as  a page attribute, similar as it is
done with the original page creation date/time. And providing a page
variable to retrieve this value. for implementation this needs a small
change in  the pmwiki.php file. So if we want such a record in the
page's attributes, we need to convince Pm of its virtues.

I think it is a good idea and would augment the existing 'ctime'
page attribute $page['ctime'].

I suggest to call it $page['cauthor'], derived from creation author.
