When adapting an application to spring-security, I wondered why the username-parameter-name for the SwitchUserFilter is not configurable... given this is possible in org.springframework.security.web.authentication.UsernamePasswordAuthenticationFilter?

Currently, this parameter-name is fixed to "j_username".
It would be nice to have this in sync with all the other authentication-filters..., no?

I've added a usernameParameter property to the filter.

@spring-issuemaster spring-issuemaster added this to the 3.1.0.RC3 milestone Feb 5, 2016
