Here is a patch for it. I think it adresses all concerns:

- Translators don't have excess work to do.
- It internationalizes well, even in languages where commas and "and"
  are placed differently.
- The code is simple, small, robust.
- Line breaking does occur, but not at spaces within author names.

Any objections?

Looks good to me.
