Check username field label for None

Sometimes when designing "log-in" forms, there is a necessity to hide the labels and use input element placeholders to identify the fields. When I entered the following in my form:

username = CharField(label='')

the generated HTML still contained the Username <label> element.

It turns out that in line 173 of django.contrib.auth.forms, the boolean test is too broad/generic. It does not take into consideration when the label is deliberately set to an empty string.

The fix to this would affect django/contrib/auth/ file.

I have created a pull request in github: #1046.
