ok, i'll look at doing that.  

it's more than just changing the field type, as i'll have to have two
password fields for each username, and there isn't the real-estate on that
screen for that.

oops; i'll include the html docs for 3.4 now.

yes; if there's any errors you need to be able to read them :)

both of these are possible, i'll see what i can do :)

thanks again for your feedback :)
