Ability to actually login whilst sending authentication information.

As part of my LJ client, users have been asking for the facility to be able to view their logged-in friends page within the client. If this was on a desktop system, all you'd have to do is login through your web browser, and embed a browser window within your client.... but it isn't.

Is there a way to set a cookie on the response of your login (perhaps by calling the webpage mode=login&user=thelovebug&password=thisisnotmypassword and thus receiving the cookie), or getting your logged-in view by sending the username and password as parameters to the customview.cgi (i.e. username=thelovebug&styleid=39452&password=thisisnotmypassword)

I'd appreciate any comments.
Thanks :-)
