 I have no issue with either removing the @ and period, or with
 whitelisting characters (+1 to hypen) for future registered accounts.

 However, there is an issue with the profiles of users who have already
 registered using their email address.

 Their login username is `name at domain.com`, but their username is displayed
 as `namedomaincom`, both on their profile, and in the url to their

 The issue comes into play when they create Trac tickets. In the ticket
 description, their profile image does not display, and clicking their
 username shows no tickets with them as a reporter. You can search for
 their username in Trac, and tickets and changesets with that username will

 In the ticket comments, their username displays as with the beginning of
 the email address they registered with, and clicking on it takes you to
 the main wordpress.org page, not their profile.

 None of their Trac activity is being connected to their .org profile.
 Forum posts and posts/comments on the Make sites show up, but nothing from
 either Core Trac or Meta Trac.

 I realize this is probably a known issue, but it would be nice to come up
 with a solution for existing user accounts in this situation. As more and
 more users begin to contribute to the project, it's important that their
 Trac contributions show up in their profiles.
