Use email as a login instead of a separated login

      Description

      The idea is to minimize the amount of information to be memorized by the final
      user. He knows very well his email, but he might forget his login. If you keep
      login as it is, you have to implement a "I forgot my login" in addition to
      the "I forgot my password".

        the username is important because it will be shown in the advertisement labels.
        Also, report SPAM and user ratings will be controlled by login name - the other
        users will not be able to know the real identity of the user, just the login name.

        A further enhancement would be SSO or OpenID, but for the first release we will
        keep the simple login strategy. (I hope we have time to do more, but a more
        realistic roadmap includes only login/password authentication mechanism).

        But your idea brought me a good insight, to code the login form in a way the
        customer may choose between login or email as identifier. In the backend, the
        system will use one of two fields to authenticate the customer - in that way the
        customer need only to remember its own email - login name becomes optional
        information, and more useful for the others.
