LDAP and valid username

Edouard Hirchaud

I configure authentication with the LDAP (Active Directory) of my
compagny. But the username  (sAMAccoutName) contains a dot (eg :
And that was a problem because the dot is not allow in galaxy username
and auto-registration fails because of that.

For testing I change the regex in "security/validate_user_input.py" and
authorize character dot and  it's work !

  I know its not a good practice to change core code so I want to know
if they are known "risks" or sides effects if I keep this change and if
you have a best solution ?
