But you can do that yourself when storing the path to database. Build a
script that hashes the username path in a way you want, and store that.

I'm still not sure if you mean what I thought you mean. If you mean that
% variables would be expanded when they're coming out of userdb then no,
it would not be accepted. It would break people's setup who actually
have % characters in paths.
