Identifiable usernames

Hi Devs,
Would it be possible to relax the regex which controls usernames? I
would like to use identifiable usernames, tied to a users email. Is
there any particular reason why we could not have a username like

foo@bar.com

Currently, I get something like . Only letters, numbers, spaces and
underscores are allowed.

I think this would make the creation of usernames a bit more user
friendly, as people could use their own emails and not have to
remember another login, plus it would be identifiable.

Thoughts?

Regards,
Jason

Fixed and backported to 2.7.
