Hello Loui,

I am working off the testing branch, didn't notice the login form
template though. I'll take a look at it and I think it's an alright
idea to split this up into two files but I don't really agree with
only having the login form on just a few pages, I think it should
still stay in the header (or in its own function called on every page,
but html_header already does that and it would mean changing most of
the code related).

I'll give an example, if I'm given a url to package details page that
I need to delete or orphan but I've been logged out it would be way
more convenient if I could log back in using that page, not a whole
lot to disrupt the work flow. This isn't really uncommon and can be
applied basically anywhere on the AUR because let's face it, there's
really only about 5 "pages" on the AUR and at least as a TU they all
need to be used logged in. A good example of how convenient this is is
on the bug tracker and I doubt that takes any extra resources.
