BitBucket - dead accounts caused by "Can't login - username already exists"

Hello, I have many different usernames (all of which are no longer in use), and now I have to start mis-spelling my username. Is it possible to find out how to re-use a username? Specifically, the following usernames are no longer in use: blachs, benlachs, benjilachs, benjaminlachs ; I have now just created a new username "benjamnlachs" which I don't like, specifically because the other 4 accounts which are unused are now "reserved forever" in BitBucket's usernamespace.


(1) It would be good to know how a given username can be re-used, when the email (eg, using Google Auth) changes.

(2) Can I change my username to any of the 4 usernames I have mentioned (which are presently unused, yet reserved)?
