I didn't do anything special, and used mechanize SVN with Python 2.5.

I won't post/email the ten line script: I don't want to encourage scraping 
against terms of use (it seems the no-scrape clause is rather a legal 
reflex action these days).  Simply logging in doesn't appear to be against 
their terms, but I assume in your case logging in would be a prelude to 
some automated action, which they do prohibit.
