I assume it would be possible to perform some
kind of trick like
username = email.lower().replace('@','AT').replace('.','DOT')

(as far as I understand, email addresses are supposed to be
case insensitive) and 

email = username.replace('AT','@').replace('DOT','.')

to allow the use of both email logins and member folders.

Or are there other restrictions, such as length, that cause
