Dial '!' for Never.

When you log in, if you want your login never to expire, you can type '!' at the end of your username. (Note: This probably isn't true yet, as the relevant patch just now went into CVS. I think it'll probably go live within the week.)

This is especially useful if you're logging in via a random dystopia/xcolibur page.

This certainly doesn't warrant a new FAQ, and I don't think there's a current FAQ that it could easily be added into, but I think it should be documented somehow (since it's pretty pointless otherwise; it's not the kind of thing you'd notice on your own). Maybe a post to lj_nifty once it goes live on the site? What do you all think?
