So, I'm really happy that the username field basically allows for email usernames now that all the email characters are permitted. I noticed that the max_length is set to 30 characters. I imagine this will cover the majority of email addresses but I could envision that a small percentage would go over the 30 character limit. Perhaps this could be solved by simply increasing the max_length variable. Or, perhaps another option would be to allow for some kind of a toggle to authenticate using the email address as the username instead of the username.
