I've said this previously, but I believe the only controversial part of

All this involves is constructing a process where every login,
regardless of the identifier and regardless of the database state,
always performs one and exactly one database query and one and exactly
one password hashing.

Before someone starts with a proposal for the proposed-tech-project 'Allow

address is easy to remember than a complex username. Currently multiple
users can sign-up with the same e-mail id - which would possibly be a
blocker, and can be fixed. Thanks to MzMcbride, we have an RFC too on
