The plan (my plan, anyway) is to provide something like that. It might even 
provide full HTTP request headers - or have more than one mode, maybe - a 
simple mode that just provides username/password, and a complex one that 
provides the full headers for more complex scripts to handle as they wish.

The data will probably be passed on stdin rather than on the command line, as 
passing passwords on the command line is generally not considered a very good
