Xenforo 2 - Use Username to Reset Password

In current Xenforo 2 demo, the reset password form can not receive "username" as input.
It only receives "email".

My suggestion is at least there is an option to allow admin to enable username to be used to reset password.

The reason is :
When someone forgets his password, he can :
  • Remembers the email, but forgets the username, or
  • Remembers the username, but forgets the email (it is quite common that someone has more than 1 email), or
  • Remembers both username & email (he just forgets the password)
Other reason :
In gmail, you can assume your email address as :
this.is.my.email@gmail.com
or
thisismyemail@gmail.com
or
thisis.myemail@gmail.com
or
t.h.i.sismy.email@gmail.com

It doesn't matter, all mails sent to those address will still be received in your gmail inbox.

When a user registers to forum, he may forget which dots combination that he uses.
If he can't remember which combination it is, he can not reset the password.
But if he can input the username, he can reset the password.
