I do not remember why we did not handle @author, what I remember is that
there were some constraints on where and how it could happen.  Maybe
something changed between docbook 4.X et docbook 5.  <bookinfo> 
seems to have disappeared, 
and instead there is an <info> that replaces it. It seems that there are
less restrictions, for instance more than one <info> element per <book>
block, which would allow to output separately the <author> and

Should we output docbook 5?

I checked rapidly, it seems that <ulink> is now <link> and that the
header should be different (though the documentation is very confusing
on that aspecct) but maybe we do not need more differences.
