Updating mentions when username changes

Do you think that when someone changes their username, old mentions of them should update to refer to them by their new username? Right now I notice that old mentions still link to the same user, but refer to them by their old username. I do not have a strong preference about this, but I am asking in case people have an opinion.

@marylander It might be preferable but that sounds like the sort of change that would happen across the board for all NodeBB instances, rather than something this forum should try to hack in.
@marylander My opinion is that if someone changes her username, the mentions of her should use the new name. But I am too lazy or distracted to modify the code to make this a reality, or to go to the support forum and beg others to do so.
Incidentally, the old forum had the same misdesign, and it is reflected in the data we have therefrom. But a positive of this is it gives clues to relate names to numbers.
