This is where I disagree ...
A link is much different than a form in most cases, especially this one.
Here is the exact code being used to generate the login link:
<?php $login_url = get_bloginfo( 'url' ) . '/wp-admin/'; ?>
Then a simple 'echo $login_url;' statement afterward.
This, IMHO, in no way lends itself to a form except by default, thus using
WordPress' core login form functionality.
