How to make PasswordRecovery webcontrol prompt for email & be more flexible

I've got this control working now but I am wondering if there are ways
to make this more flexible. Specifically:

1. I would like to have the user prompted for his EMAIL address first
rather than his USERNAME (i.e. based on notion that if he forgot his
password chances are he may have also forgotten his username but rarely
would not know his password). Has Microsoft allowed this control to be
tweaked somehow to behave in this fairly standard manner?

2. Is there any way to configure this control (or other related
controls) such that:

a. Password on file is not automatically changed to a extremely strong
(temporary) password.

b. Instead, the current but forgotten password is obtainable and sent
to the user's email address in its decrypted form.

I realize this may not be the best practice but my boss is convinced
based on his own experience with using the web that having the user
paste a very strong password into his next login attempt (from the
email generated) is something that will be too much for our user.
Instead, he wants me to send the actual password on file in the email
to the user (because this is the way every web site he has used handles
this facility). I need to know what my options are (if any) with this
control. Thanks in advance for guidance.
