Details

Right now we have..

400: server error (* hits the default: case)
401: login rejected
404: login rejected

We could actually identify them differently and expose that to the user:
400: invalid username (probably typed in an @email address)
401: login rejected (wrong password)
404: username doesn't exist (valid username format, but no account here)
Future for now, may re-evaluate later.
