WordPress by default have two easy ways for non authenticated user to discover user names (at least the author ones), by canonical redirect from the "old" url formats, and by querying the user information via the REST API.

In addition WordPress gladly discloses which user names and emails are in use via login and password reset error messages.

the login was handled as part of #133, author urls as part of #83, what is left for this issue is the rest api
