how to change the default label on a readonly ForeignKey


Hi,

I'm using django 1.2.4.

On the admin, the default label for a ForeignKey field reference to
User is User.username.

This is less desirable to me and I am able to create a full name label
on a drop-down menu, by subclassing ModelChoiceField and overriding
label_from_instance as per the django documentation.

However, when I save an instance and bring it up on a change form, I
set the ForeignKey field as a readonly_field, and the label reverts to
User.username.

Is there any way to display an alternate label when the ForeignKey is
set to a readonly_field?

Thanks,
Stephen
