Need API to fetch user name associated with CreatedById on Payment object

Use case : If someone in accounting issues credits to an account the id of the person issuing a credit is captured in the CreatedById. I can cron a report that shows yesterday's credits but there is no way to actually fetch identifying information for who issued the credit. Instead I get a CreatedById - which is not useful for humans. The user's email would be much more useful (and is also guaranteed unique).

Even if the more human useful data (email address) were not available on the object itself there should be some means provided to query to retrieve the useful information. 

There are various other places in the system that provide the system generated id for a user instead of something actually useful like the email address. 

Note: this request has apparently already been logged in the Zuora Product Management feature tracking application. The tracking number is PROD-37
