I personally think its a must-have for MediaWiki, as
address is easy to remember than a complex username.
It's also important because users of mobile devices are very used to this
design pattern for logging in to apps, and having it in the mobile apps is
blocked by not having it in MediaWiki.
users can sign-up with the same e-mail id - which would possibly be a
blocker, and can be fixed.
I wouldn't even try to tackle that problem for a first pass at this.
If we can get login with username working for the case where there is a
one-to-one match between email and password, that's a *huge* step forwards.
The many-to-one case can follow afterwards.
