#1966: Custom urls to Profile

 Don't know if there's already a ticket on this but it would be really nice
 if you could get a custom/user-friendly url to your profile. I've seen
 this implemented on several huge communities including Facebook.

 1: Say my default profile url is "http://domain.com/members/ezcali/"

 2: Then somewhere inside Profile I can check to see if
 "http://domain.com/ezcali" is available as my custom profile url. If it's
 available I can register that url and its mine. If not I can try and
 register for a different url.

 Technically I can then access my profile from 2 different url's. The
 original and the custom url. It's important that the custom url is being
 setup as a 301 redirect to the original url to avoid duplicate content
 issues with google ect.
