Apache simply uses the os-syscall getpwnam (or similar) to get the path. 
So if you can configure your OS to provide something different, then you 
are fine.

Otherwise, you either would need to hack mod_userdir, or use mod_rewrite, 
which is capable of doing substitutions based on a text database.
