I have no Hub product or operational reason to support usernames
outside the BMP. I support refusing to create such usernames server-
side, and restricting their submission in the UI.
I don't think we should work to support astral Unicode planes
anywhere, even in payloads. The payoff is very low. If checking for
astral codepoints is cheap, it'd be cool to throw an error upon
submission, but I bet we would live fine even if we didn't do that.
I'm fine with a U+10000 bug for future, but I would really prefer to
see it Futured and *not* 1.0. 1.0 is too close, and has other far
more valuable goals.
