 > This is going to block periods in usernames too, which I am fine with.
 Unless we wanted to allow periods in user nicenames on WordPress.org, but
 we don't want two users with the same name, just one with a period and one
 with a hyphen. I presume.

 +1 for blocking periods too.

 We had someone a couple of weeks ago whose plugins weren't lining up with
 his profile because he had periods in his name. The profiles slug didn't
 have the periods but his nicename did, and adding the periods to his name
 in the plugin contributors list fixed the problem, IIRC.
