why? are we out of alphabetic combinations?

You know what they say...they always come back. What if someone tries arch
and comes to the conclusion he/she isn't ready for it. He/she leaves and
after some time tries again. It would be a shame coming back and noticing
your account is deleted or taken over by someone

IMO if Jamie wants to have the AUR username he should just contact the other
account holder (if the e-mail is publically available anyway). I don't see
any reason to take action, there are enough alphanumeric combinations left.
