 > We could remove that filter and that would probably address this issue;
 we'd need to do some testing to see what would happen though especially
 with profile URLs and user_login vs. user_nicename.

 Right. Aesthetically, I would like to get rid of this filter, but as you
 note, we need to research what's going to happen. The only problem would
 be with username-compatibility mode, I think (since we use user_nicename
 by default). In those cases, I wonder if we can just fix the issue with
 the judicious use of `urlencode()` and `urldecode()`.

 Let's figure something out for 1.7, if we can.
