      Description

      Allow users to also use their email address to login, in addition to their username.

      Their email address might be much easier to remember and/or type in, especially for non-ASCII alphabets. There is little security advantage to forcing them to type only their username when many other boards accept both email and username.

      This will also save a retrieval step if they forget their username.

      When implementing be sure the prompt also mentions both.
