Description

If a WP site has multiple authors with the same display name (either because of having a large user base with common names or because of having several testing users with the same display name), why not show the user’s login name in the dropdown menu?

This step in the import process shows the display name and the user name of the new user(s) to be imported, but leaves existing users ambiguous if they have the same name.

I’m more than willing to work on this and submit a patch.
