change "author" field format to have login, fname, lname instead of ambiguous "full name"
"author" and "assigned_to" fields included in "get issues" XML response have user full name under ambiguous "name" attribute:
<author name="Alexey Java" id="421"/>
<assigned_to name="Alexey Java" id="421"/>
this would simplify the response parsing. I can't reconstruct firstName and lastName from this response without making a separate "getUsers()" call to the server, which seems unnecessary.

this is about the response from the server, not about setting values by the clients. we can't properly parse the server response from this combined "name" which actually contains a combination of first name, space, then last name - what if they contain spaces in names?..
