Modifying user name loses connection with revisions

If you edit your user name, the number of revisions you made returns to 0. This is because in the Revision object, the user's name is stored, rather than the user's ID.

rgrp: We can reconnect that pretty easily (and have a longer term solution that involves not using the usernames but the userids in in the Revision objects so we don't hvae this problem in future!)

Thanks for registering this. This was known in the change that allow editing of usernames. Suggestion there was a bigger fix which was to do, asap, a switch to change all revisions to use user id rather than username. If we do this now that will save us a lot of pain ...
