This would work for my personal needs, and perhaps a recipe could be
added just for those who want this feature, with appropriate
disclaimers.  We would not need to put it in any of the password
documentation.  Could someone suggest exactly how to do this?


Note:  it occurred to me there might be problems if the username
starts with a lowercase letter, as I've noticed the name variable is
automatically given an initial capital.
