[wp-hackers] Modify sanitize_user()

I think there will be a little problem.
usernames can contain spaces, and sanitization replaces spaces with a
dash ("angus young" -> "angus-young")
If you do what you're thinking about, you won't be able to tell if the
sanitized dash is a space of a dash, so "angus young" and
"angus-young" will have the same sanitized username.

Makes sense?
