comment Finding a user given their (exact) display name
Just thinking about this, min=john&max=JOHN would actually include "gohn" I believe... I'll still have to filter on the client-side. It seems a bit odd that filter is case in-sensitive, but min&max are case-sensitive.

comment Finding a user given their (exact) display name
@Soviut: It's not actually for authentication, the "registration" is just adding users to a list that my app monitors for reputation changes (among other things) - you can "register" any user you like. Basically just an easier method than having to find your user ID.

comment Finding a user given their (exact) display name
@Dennis: the problem is that to get all of the exact matches for "John" I would have to download all 1,287 results from the API before displaying them to the user to choose. That's 43 requests... by adding an exact=true parameter, then I could do it in a single query.

Awesome library! I'm hoping to release an "alpha" of my first app based off your library in a few days :-)
