I got an email from the Google+ Team saying I was able to get a custom URL.
>From clicking the link in the email it brought up a modal that had a link
to let me chose something other than the reserved name. So perhaps whomever
got the email (Doug I'd assume is the original owner) will have the ability
to request a custom URL.

However, if we already have a custom URL assigned, then we may need to
figure out if there is some way we could get a contact in the G+ Team to
get a manual change.
