I would not mind writing up a proposal to list issues and workflow for
the login/user-management issues.
The RFC is formal, so I would write it as a wiki page initally, once the
actual issues are decided,
we could create issue tickets for each, and put up an RFC for each of
the breaking changes?
I don't have experience or time enough to actually implement the changes
