Category Action Documentation

Once the planned 'autodoc' feature for actions is "live", this page will contain the automatically-generated documentation by just including an action; for now, I've just manually created the text.

The 'category' action will list the wikiname (for e.g JohnSmith etc..).

Is it possible to have the category action list the name as John Smith? Is there any other way to issue this?

I am using Wikka as a PIM and have a contacts category. Using the 'category' action, all the names are listed well, but without spaces making it hard to read. Any ideas/suggestions?

Because of category names are composed by words with capitalized first letters, should be enough to make a function that split the string based on capitalized words and print the new string.
