Different authors with same last name

Thank you for the excellent work. Unlike Microsoft's files, BibWord enabled me to create new styles or modify them according to the editors requirements, with minimum effort (and xslt knowledge).
I'd like to ask whether there is a way to have the authors' initials appear in the in-text citations, only for different authors with the same last name.
(Peterson K., 2008; Peterson R.A., 2002; Lewis, 1999; Rogers, 1965)

Two different Petersons, but only one Lewis and only one Rogers. Some styles require that in this case the authors' initials should be mentioned too.

I guess that an additional option is needed for %First% and %Middle% in the <namelists> (<first_person> and <other_persons>) that would allow initials to appear for non-unique author names. An additional template checking for non-unique author names is also needed. Unfortunately, my knowledge to create this option and the corresponding template, is insufficient.

Thanks for any help
