I'd like to display a grid of authors on my site showing the name of the author and their avatar. The tricky part is, I'd like to be able to control this from the Menus page in the dashboard so I have control over who is displayed and in what order they are displayed.

Is this doable? I don't think a custom walker would work in this situation as it wouldn't allow for arbitrary order and selection control. So my next thought is how to add another selector on the menus page for authors. Any help?

Walker doesn't control order and selection, it just turns supplied hierarchical data into resulting output. – Rarst Oct 28 '13 at 18:50
So the next option would be to try to hook into the metabox on the Menus page, agreed? – javy Oct 28 '13 at 18:59
