Some people don't remember with which of their five spam addresses they registered for a site, so it might be convenient to reset your password by entering your username. And the other way round for folks that forget their usernames but not their e-mail addresses.
The implementation approach in the attached patch is to guess whether the entered string is a e-mail or a username.
