Java Documentation Additions

We were working on something and everyone is contributing little little snippet of codes, a method here and there. We document too a lot so I being the manager of the code put @author on every method of every class, bcos one person can not say he is the one that wrote a particular class from start to finish.

When I run javadoc, I recieved a very great shock. There are a lot of warnings flying across my screen and the bottomline line is Javadoc only supports @author on the class or package and not on methods grrrrrrrrr

I have to remove all the @author in the files(thanks to cat and grep) but wont it be a nice addition if subsequent versions of javadoc support this tag on methods too?

Never mind its me just thinking aloud.
