Legacy profile URL formats should 301

Description

I'm seeing lots of broken/404'ing profile links in old content (e.g., https://wordpress.org/news/2009/11/a-little-support/), which look like they used to use a numeric ID syntax but weren't redirected.

E.g., a link to adiant's profile goes to https://wordpress.org/support/users/1499874/, which 404's.

Is 1499874 the user ID of the profile at https://wordpress.org/support/users/adiant/?
I'm hoping we can just 301 all of these with a quick rule.

If this isn't the case and these are dead / irreconcilable, we'll need to return a 410 on them, and remove/update all internal links where they're exposed.
