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.

This would require every Django installation in the world to change their database schema, and as such simply can't happen right now.
