I always liked the "old" style idea of logging-in with your email
address which, in other words, means that you register with
id = your at email.here
pass = *********

Possible drawbacks are that you might change sex in time, and this
would force you to change from john at yahoo.com to mary at yahoo.com.
Even a company change would force you to switch from
john at microsoft.com to john at google.com and, indeed, this would mean
that you have to re-register.

Nevertheless I do like the idea...
