Duplicating the already complicated create_token_from_username is  
still a temporary solution that is messy in a different way.  I would  
prefer to not duplicate the function to avoid the future maintenance  
burden of keeping the two functions in sync.  The real answer is that  
this code path needs some serious love.

It was necessary for us to do this above the wbc layer so the solution  
could be wbc implementation agnostic.

It is clear that none of us are happy with this solution in its  
current form, and doing this the right way is too big of a change for  
us to spend the time on right now.  I'll revert the patch for now, and  
put it on our list of things to work on in the upcoming months.
