[Mailman-Developers] Show real names in roster?

is there a reason why the roster page does not show full names?

Obvious concern is the privacy of the list members.
But on the other hand:
- the roster has its own access control,
- the mail address itself is usually more valuable and can be used to
get the real name.
- entering the real name on subscription is optional.

Thus IMHO showing real names does not disclose significant information,
but makes things more convenient for legitimate users.

I have attached a three-line patch against Mailman/HTMLFormatter.py
