 When we talk about securing wordpress, it is advised to change the
 username from admin to something else. Wordpress below 3.0 does not allows
 this directly,so DB edit is required(or there is a plugin, I don't
 remember the name, is required); yes, in wp 3.0(in trunk version), admin
 username can be chosen at the time of setup, so this may not be a thing to
 look after wp 3.0 is out.
