Support Twitter like mentions
Twitter is so popular that users use
@username syntax even in messages which do not support it!.. So it’s a kind of natural mentioning syntax nowadays...
I don’t remember why I decided not to use this syntax, but seems I have changed my mind... Maybe because user login is rather unknown in Redmine (where does it get shown?). But this can be changed.... Is there any reasons why it should not be?.. (Will need to check!)

Actually, I would rather see Google+ syntax
user: is hard to use because you must know user number or login name.
In large corporations majority of users are typical n00bs who don’t know how to find that out.
Google+ solves that with + syntax; when you start typing, after few letters pop up appears with the list of people starting with those letters. Enter selects first one on the list, arrows can be used to select others. You could then insert whatever form you want once the user selects another user from the pop up, but its probably better to use
user: notation as it does not contain magic numbers.
That would be perfect solution IMO.

What is the status of this feature. Without it #1901 doesn’t have much value. In large corporations you need to be able to complete users or nobody uses the feature. Login name is totally invisible to non admins in general. User id is hard to find by average user.
