In my experience it's very common, especially among startups. I've had my
name and once my picture (part of a group photo) appear in a hidden
dialog, and it's always a kick to see it come up.

Microsoft products have regularly had these for years, in addition to
other easter eggs (such as a fully-functional flight simulator game in
one release of Excel). So have Adobe (FrameMaker's isn't even
particularly hidden) and Apple, to name a couple of others.

If you don't mind having your name attached to the product, let them do
it. It can give you a real sense of pride, as well as fostering team
spirit and all of that nonsense within the development group (of which
you are apparently a part).

Enjoy it...
