Cool! Then we could have "Alternative Login Name Authorities" demanding the we
let them log into our systems with their "alternative" login names! And, 
selling "alternative" accounts on our systems - of course its our fault not
theirs that we don't support them. Hmmm...

Tell me do you really know your brother man
Cause a heart speaks louder than a colour can
And why would you even shake a man's hand
If you're not going to help him stand
