~sircmpwn/meta.sr.ht#173: 
Warn if username is invalid in DNS

https://lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss/%3C6fe2f6d8-c613-df86-7108-704e34853679%40posteo.net%3E

A user ~phi1_h created a SourceHut Site which does not load on some devices. It's possible it's due to the underscore, which is not allowed in DNS.

SourceHut should warn or reject if a username is invalid in DNS.

  • Find the most relevant RFC.
  • Implement a function to check users who are signing up with a username that isn't permitted.

A warn seems fine to me, as they may never want to use SourceHut Pages, and if they do they could change their username (#118)
