Technically, proper_name isn't necessary, but "proper_name (...)" does
give more information to the translator than _(...).  Also, in general,
when an author's name has a translation, proper_name provides
functionality that some think is worthwhile: it returns
"TRANSLATION (NAME)", where "NAME" is the original ASCII argument.
