[wp-hackers] Changing username - WordPress

We're discussing a project where the client has asked for users to login
using email and password. The current suggestion is to look into
auto-generating a username (so it can be anything random) together with
allowing log in using the user's email address. Means they can change their
email address and still log into the same account.

Last year, something similar was requested, but they also wanted multiple
accounts per email address. That didn't go ahead. But I did look into it at
time and blogged a little snippet about logging with email (may or may not
still work):
