A project that uses overrides the Django authentication function to track
failed login attempts on a per-user basis. Code is based on BruteBuster
(http://code.google.com/p/django-brutebuster/) but is simplified because of
the dropped requirement of tracking IP addresses. Django-Axes is another
source of inspiration (http://code.google.com/p/django-axes/)
