How do you normally present the username and password?

If it is via a pop-up authentication dialog box, then the usual methods
such as twill-sh's add_auth should work.

If if is via a username and password prompt on a web page, then you have
to direct twill to fill in the form.  You will either receive a cookie,
or a session ID in a redirection.

Everybody does it differently.
