What is the best way to use emails as usernames?

I'd like people to be able to log in with their email/password (i.e. have it serve as their username).

It is necessarily a problem with email usernames, because emails are unique identifiers that are not case-sensitive. How to solve the problem is another issue, but I think for now specifying the username case on the client side should work for us.
Case sensitivity is not necessarily a problem, but if it is for your use case, I have answered the question here https://support.kinvey.com/discussion/201272380/how-should-i-make-the-username-case-insensitive
The problem with this is case sensitivity. How do you recommend combating this?
Since Kinvey currently only supports logging in with usernames, the simplest way to achieve this would be to set the users' usernames to their email addresses.
