 Password meter, yes.

 By "email validation" do you mean JS checks to see whether your email
 address is well-formed? If so, yes, please patch it up. If not, please

 Username availability is a whole other can of worms. AJAX calls from non-
 logged-in users can open the door for performance issues (especially given
 the spambots that hit registration pages). And it raises the possibility
 of privacy issues.

 If you plan to patch these, please do it in separate patches so they can
 be reviewed separately. Thanks!
