No, it is just .select(db.auth_user.username). But that assumes you only 
want the username field and no other fields. If you want all fields, then 
it is .select(db.auth_user.ALL). But that isn't necessary either, because 
as long as there is a query inside db(), you can leave the .select() empty, 
and you will get all fields by default -- so, just do:

all_users = db(db.auth_user).select()

This is all in the documentation.
