The proxied email addresses Facebook provides via it's API look something like this: apps+107627842277.100000147873279.3fbf72360a409641ecb9202d8ac5af5e@…
That's 89 characters long, so it doesn't fit into the 75 characters in django.contrib.auth.models.User.email.
I'd like to suggest increasing that field's max_length to 200.
The only potential downside is that certain databases (Oracle) limit the total potential size of a row. That would only matter if someone heavily extended the auth_user table, which is rare. Usually the profile feature is used.
Can anyone see this causing a problem?
