 IOS devices often auto-capitalize the first letter in input fields.  While
 this may be OK in a lot of places, it's not an acceptable behavior while
 usernames remain case sensitive (i.e.
 https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/2273).

 To address this issue, username inputs should include
 `autocapitalize="none"` among the attrs for the username (and possibly
 password) fields.  I ran into this issue with
 `django.contrib.auth.forms.AuthenticationForm`, where
 `autocapitalize="none"` could be added to the attrs in the property-based
 field.  However, I could see the argument for fixing it at the
 `UsernameField` so it cascades to other uses (e.g. `UserCreationForm` and
 `UserChangeForm`).
