Ahh. Well when I was working with sendmail email addresses the practice
was called munging. But I believe that text normalization is defined as
the practice of modifying any arbitrary text to a standard
representation. In this case user logins are all stored as lowercase,
whitespace trimmed, left-shifted, single spaced token delimited,
phrases. So that MYUSER == MyUser == myuser. It avoids much
unhappiness with users.
