django.contrib.auth.views.login(...) doesn't accept a form argument

This is my first ticket, so please don't eat me!

I wanted my users to be able to login using their email and password, not the username.

I created a ModelForm that exposed the User's (model) email and password. However, I found out that django.contrib.auth.views.login(...) doesn't accept a form argument.

I think for use cases like this it would be useful to accept a form argument and allow the form to determine what it means to be valid or not.

Thi is already possible. See (New in Django 1.2: If you are using alternate authentication (see Other authentication sources) you can pass a custom authentication form to the login view via the authentication_form parameter. This form must accept a request keyword argument in its init method, and provide a get_user method which returns the authenticated user object (this method is only ever called after successful form validation).)
