delimiter-precedes-et-al

As discussed on the xbiblio mailing list[*], I'd like to propose a new backwards-compatible hierarchical name attribute, delimiter-precedes-et-al, that would function similarly to delimiter-precedes-last.

By default, the delimiter between the et-al term and the preceding name(s) is contextual (a space for a single preceding name, the name delimiter for multiple names). With the delimiter-precedes-et-al attribute (default of "contextual"), it would be possible to force (value of "always") or prevent (value of "never") the use of the name delimiter for the two cases.
