I have already impelemted ipb_by_text colomn, so zero-id users (anons and crosswiki) may block somebody. Required for crosswiki blocks.
I'm a bit leery of anon blocks, but this could be handy.

I think we'll call that the understatement of the year (for now). Crosswiki blocks (something VasilievVV has pretty much finished implementing now) need this though.
Note, though, that we'll have to fill the ipb_by_text fields for old entries based on their ipb_by, which will be a huge operation for large wikis.

Introduced in r31057, marking bug as resolved.
