Use this class when you have a list of authors that you want to manipulate,
but you only have the list of names at runtime (where
L<Acme::CPANAuthors::Register> is not very convenient).

An L<Acme::CPANAuthors> object will be created for you, containing the same
data as if you had registered a new class at compile time.

However, you cannot call C<< Acme::CPANAuthors->new >> with your category and
get back a new object; it still only knows about modules on disk.

=head1 METHOD

=head2 create

takes a hash reference to create an Acme::CPANAuthors object.

=head1 AUTHOR
