Originally I just wanted to support OpenID, so I didn't have to worry
about any of this stuff. But it turns out the set of people who are
paranoid about OpenID but don't want to setup a private was larger
than I thought, so the whole password support bit feel a bit tacked on
afterwards. I'll put it on the list.

The new system does fix one thing though, usernames are reserved only
after confirmation, so if something breaks the first you can simply
try registering the username again and it will succeed.

I'm having difficult thinking what the confusion might be, but
username is perhaps the more generally accepted term, so I'm willing
to change that.

So am I, I just have no idea when we can actually push it live...

Have a nice day,
