Use Levenshtein distance in password strength

Recommended Posts

If I have a username of alfred_deakin and my password is alfreddeakin I would like the password strength indicator to take the similarity of the password to the username into account (and warn me that this is a very weak password). This would be easily achieved using Levenshtein distance. Thoughts?
