Hmm, you know, you're right, I didn't really think this through.

If two people are sharing a working copy, each of them should have to
pass --username exactly once. After that, no more problems.

That makes me wonder what problem this patch was solving...

Nah, because we don't know if it's correct (although at worst I guess
that could just cause a reprompt later).
