#7 Username/password login (no ID number)

Asking users to remember their MoinMoin unique ID is a
real pain. This version of user.py only requires a
Username/password from a user.

The ID number is still used internally and for the
cookie, but the user doesn't need to know about it.
To make this work, a file is kept which maps
username->id number.

I'd be interested in anyone's feedback on this idea.

    user.py that doesn't ask user for ID number to login.

    Patch for 0.9: no ID number, password checking.

    Also, it would be good if the password was actually tested
    to see if it is correct. The latest patch I am uploading
    does this as well.

    As before, and don't allow duplicate usernames.
