The number of the lines one can see on a single page is an interesting
point. Two things can be done there, use a sighlty smaller font and
reduce the vertical padding a bit. Will give it a try.

I'm wondering what's the problem here. The auto-completion should
present you with the relevant list of submitters. Are you saying there's
a valid case for searching for "Thom" and get all the Thomas? That with
the way it was done before it was fewer keys to type?

If you want to give it a try, using jquery, that should be something

  $(function() {

ie, on the document load event (DOM ready!), find the element with the
'id_username' id and give it focus.

FWIW, I haven't touched anything there yet, except the navigation bar at
the top.
