sometimes I need more human readable URL for my redmine account. for example,

http://www.redmine.org/account/show/5263 (currently)


http://www.redmine.org/account/show/sio4 (meet 404 page)

how about this? and one more step forward, more fency version is,


If redmine is used for development portal or something like *forge, it will be very useful function. (and I can write this URL on my blogs. "hey, I contributed on great open source project called redmine, here is my page! http://www.redmine.org/u/sio4")

...and here is a quick and dirty patch.
