 Thanks, DJPaul!

 >  I'm wondering how you are thinking we deal with URLs when a someone has
 their member-type changed? Redirects?

 I'm planning on not dealing with it at all - the current proposal is for
 directories only. Single member URLs are the subject of #6333. (The point
 about member type changes is, btw, yet another argument for a wontfix

 > Also, do you think we need to block people from registering user names
 that match a member-type or not? Or would .com/moderators/moderators be

 This is a good point, but the issue is not .com/moderators/moderators,
 it's .com/members/moderator, where 'moderator' is a member type. In my
 inital patch, user pages will always win out in these types of clashes,
 and the member type directory is still available using
 ?member_type=moderator, but you're right that we should blacklist member-
 type directory slugs. I'll work on this for v2.
