[EP-tech] Tweaking the "creators" section on the workflow

To flesh that out a bit more. There's a bit of code I wrote that lets 
you get a single property from a "compound" field. This lets you loop 
over a field like creator and set how it renders each item in the loop. 
However, this only changes how it renders on the summary (or citation). 
The solution with DOM hacking in perl is required to change the way it 
renders throughout the system.

example for the citations/eprints/summary_page.xml file;

      <epc:foreach expr="$item{dates}" iterator="date">
        <div class='uos-eprints-dv'><span
expr="$date.subproperty('date_type')" /> date:</span> <epc:print
expr="$date.subproperty('date')" /></div>

(you'd have to tweak this to loop over creators and render the subproperties how you like)
Add this Code to eprint_render.pl:

sub EPrints::Script::Compiled::run_subproperty
          my( $self, $state, $objvar, $value ) = @_;

          if( !defined $objvar->[0] )
                  $self->runtime_error( "can't get a property
{".$value->[0]."} from undefined value" );
          my $ref = ref($objvar->[1]);

          if( $ref !~ m/::/ || ! $objvar->[1]->isa(
"EPrints::MetaField::Compound" ) )
                  $self->runtime_error( "can't get a subproperty from
anything except a compound field value, when trying to get
".$value->[0]." from a $ref" );
          my $field = $objvar->[1];
          if( $field->get_property( "multiple" ) )
                  $self->runtime_error( "can't get a subproperty from a
multiple field." );

          my $fc = $field->get_property( "fields_cache" );
          my $sub_field;
          my @ok = ();
          foreach my $a_sub_field ( @{$fc} )
                  push @ok, $a_sub_field->{sub_name};
                  if( $a_sub_field->{sub_name} eq $value->[0] )
                          $sub_field = $a_sub_field;
          if( !defined $sub_field ) {
                  $self->runtime_error( "unknown sub-field of a compound:
".$value->[0].". OK values: ".join( ", ", @ok )."." );
          $sub_field->set_property( "multiple", 0 );

          return [
                  $objvar->[0]->{ $value->[0] },
                  $sub_field ];
