[wp-hackers] Multiple orderby and order options in WP_Query

I have a situation where I want to order a list of post both by author and
date using WP_Query which isn't a problem since 'orderby' lets me do that.
But I want the author part sorted ascending and date part sorted descending.

Any tips on how I can achieve this?

The arguments I pass to WP_Query are:

$author_args = array (
                'post_type'            => 'post',
                'posts_per_page'    => '-1',
                'orderby'            => 'author date',
                'order'                => 'ASC',
                'nopaging'            => true,
                'category_name'        => $category_name
