For the sake of argument, let's assume the maemo.org account database
looks like:

| id | username   | tmo_profile                  |
| 1  | jaffa      | http://..../member.php?u=75  |
| 2  | bobsmith   |                              |

I'm assuming it's not impossible for anyone with access to the
maemo.org account database to do:

    SELECT DISTINCT tmo_profile FROM accounts

That then gives a set of associated profile IDs of just (75). So,
iterate from 1 to 20000, skipping 75.
