Why? If we're feature-adding, we might as well go the extra mile and
add functionality to deal with the real problem, rather than adding

How about a page entilted 'Delete user' that says something along the
lines of 'Deleting a user won't delete the posts authored by that
user, so please select another user to attribute those posts to'?
