[REQUEST] Real Name/Display Name Mod...

I need a module to separate the user name from the name displayed throughout the forum. I am going to be integrating the forum and need to utilize the user name to match our own internal naming scheme, but want to allow the users to be able to change how they appear. I know there is a modification for v2 (called "Real Name" if I recall), but I need one for v3.

Anyone have any idea's how to do this? I have added a custom field "Display Name" and I have linked that to a global variable S_Display_Name, however I can't figure out how to store that information when posting or how to display it, I have tried to edit the viewtopic_body template and it will only display the current user's "display name". Am I going about this wrong? Any explicit directions on what files to edit and where would be greatly appreciated as I've already spent about 10 hours trying to do this. Thank you very much.

Yep, I'm bound to convert that MOD for phpbb2 to phpbb3 because I also need it for a job of mine.
I don't think I could release any code though within the end of this month, I'm so busy. :|

That's not really what I am looking for. That simply displays additional information on the view topic pages. What I am looking for is a way to have a custom profile field that replaces username *everywhere* username displayed, so my users can log in with one name, however be able to easily change the name displayed on the board (last post / who's online / on posts / etc) similar to the 2.0 mod called Real Name. Thank you for the help though.
