Instant Tags

I'm interested in whizzing up a Greasemonkey script much like "Instant Comments" to "instant tag" my entries. I post my entries with MultiBlog which uses the Blogger API, and not the flat API and thus can't post tags. I'd like to add a swift way to easily tag my entries from the recent list.

However, the tag edit page (edittags.bml) has a hidden form field with the auth details, lj_form_auth, I'm guessing (tho I haven't tried to be honest!) That if I don't send a valid lj_form_auth value in, I wont' be able to instant tag my entries.

Is there a way I can aquire a value from this form from an entry list? Is there another way I can post the tags in (short of producing a greasemonkey flat api client ;-))?

Cheers,

Mike
