in reply to Username Changing: Redux

That's an interesting idea, but how often do you see it being used? It seems like an oft-unused feature, to me. I could be very wrong about this, though.

Another point contra the idea of changing usernames -- this has the potential to break many, many links that use names and not ids.

    I'd guess/hope that it would be fairly infrequent, but I'd like to have the option provided the cost of implementation is low.

    As far as links are concerned, we'd likely have to do something like what ar0n recently did for giant.
