Hi All,

I have a usecase for WordPress that requires me to allow specifying the username that will be logged into for WordPress via a URL parameter.

Essentially, a WordPress plugin allows creating a new username, only if a valid email has been sent. As part of the authentication flow, I want to be able to specify what the username was on the URL so that the user can just click the link that is sent to them via email, requiring only that their password be entered.

I have provided a patch. Please let me know if there are any changes that should be made.
