Should old usernames be recycled?

There's a lively discussion on the Coalition mailing list about whether there should be some way to release usernames from inactive accounts. Denise isn't keen on the idea, it should be noted.

I am getting confused trying to follow the discussion through the labyrinthine mailing list archives, so have a poll:

Poll #1205806 Old usernames

Which of these is more important to you?
