I've been using to allow users to log in with their email address, and it has been working really nicely except that users with an email address over 30 characters can't log in. The fix is simply to increase the max_length attribute on the login form's username field, however to effect this change I needed to write a custom view, which was a duplicate of contrib.auth.views.login except that it used my custom form.

My proposal is to add an optional 'form' argument to contrib.auth.views.login - that way I could just put

    (r'^accounts/login/$', auth_views.login, {'form': MyAuthenticationForm}),

in my url conf.
