Changing Wiki Login Procedure

At the moment, logging in to the various project's wiki sites causes a browser dialog to appear, which isn't particularly common these days. There doesn't appear to be a way of getting a password reminder, should someone forget their password. The error page someone gets if they type in an incorrect username or password doesn't look particularly nice either. Over on the server-admin Trac, I've fixed these issues. Users are presented with a webform to login (see http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/server-admin/login). That form also has a link whereby the user can request a password reminder. The error one gets if you fail to authenticate is much nicer looking as well, IMO.
I plan on implementing this login form for the LFS wiki site as well. If BLFS and ALFS folks would like, I can also implement this in their respective wikis too. Let me know what you think, please.
