nnimap-user setting?

I'm apparently among the very few users who resist the temptation to
save their IMAP password into the authinfo file, but I find that in such
a case it is annoying to have to confirm the user name each and
every time.

So I think a patch like the one below would make sense (tho re-using
nnimap-authenticator to store the user name would work as well).
