Is there a way to hide user from menu bar?

I have a really long name, and ML displays it in the right corner of my menu bar. It pushes all my other icons way far left and I'd like to hide it since I never switch users anyway. Is this possible?

Sys Prefs -> Users & Groups -> Login Options -> turn off "Show fast user switching menu as"

Doh! GGJstudios got me by one minute!
