 As mentioned on wp-hackers. Please note that I just went over this with a
 fine tooth comb, but it still needs a little testing and double checking
 just to be sure. ;)

 Demo: http://test.viper007bond.com/wordpress-latest/wp-login.php

 What's new (oh where to begin?!):

 * {{{wp-register.php}}} moved to {{{wp-login.php?action=register}}} and
 redirect added in {{{wp-register.php}}}

 * Registration page is currently only like half styled in the SVN. This
 has been fixed.

 * Multiple errors can now be displayed for each form

 * Bottom links made to look pretty (they looked bad if registration was

 * Fixed some display issues in IE

 * Made the WP logo much easier to click in FF (it was all funky before)

 * Removal of all references to {{{wp_die()}}}. All errors and messages
 (nearly) are now reported via the standard error area.

 And the most important:

 * Tons of new hooks and filters

 You can now restyle the login pages however you want due to the addition
 of a hook into the {{{<head>}}}.

 Each form also now has a hook in it so that you add new input fields (say
 their sex or birthday or even a CAPTCHA). There's also of course a new
 hook for each that allows you to handle the {{{$_POST}}} and then set an
 error if your field is left blank, not filled in correctly, etc. This
 error will be displayed like any other error.
