Or if you want to be really clever about it:

get_template_part( 'piecename', get_the_author_meta( 'login' ) );

Then just create a "piecename.php" in the theme, to use as a default
fallback, and create individual piecename-author.php files for each
author's custom piece of that part of the template.
