createsuperuser fails when custom user model has no username

There is a dependency in the createsuperuser management command on the existence of a field called 'username' in a user model.
Since #3011 was fixed, user models do not necessarily have that field. They are required to have a single identifying field, which is passed in as the first parameter to their create_superuser() method, but it is not necessarily named username.
As a result, if syncdb installs django.contrib.auth, and the user model does not have a 'username' field, then the creation of the initial superuser will fail.
I have a (one line) patch which fixes this, and will try to get tests written for it later today.
