Of course. We were going to do these things anyway.

The reasons for not calling the new extension newloginbox were:
  - The new felogin extension only contains the pi1 of newloginbox which
    is the login, and does not contain the pi3, which is the user
    listing plugin. The latter will be moved into a new extension called
    "feuserlisting" by Stefan Strasser.
  - Newloginbox is a bad name, as it is not very "speaking". You need to
    know the history of TYPO3 to understand why it is called
    newloginbox. So "felogin" is just the better extkey.

Any reviews? Detailed, if possible.
