Comment (by jwarren):

 Replying to [comment:1 MikeHansenMe]:
 > Instead of adding new hooks is there a reason we exclude those from
 triggering 'wp_login_failed'? If not we could just pass the additional
 param into that hook. [attachment: 32508.2.diff] is an example and still
 needs some docs.

 That was actually my initial idea and would definitely be a cleaner
 option. But I'm concerned about breaking current implementations. If
 people don't expect their action to fire on `wp_login_failed` then it
 could go awry. We also don't have a `$username` to pass if we're failing
 due to `empty_username`. We could end up with white screen of death PHP
 errors in code that expects it.
