Why do you HAVE to expose a button for login?  Can't someone just
add the privileged action to the URL line?

I mean, you can't have everything.  Either have a login button, or
use the URL line.  At work, I have a login button.  On my web
sites the extra buttons don't appear unless you are logged in...
and you have to enter a privileged action on the URL line
to get the login prompt (so they look more like a CMS managed site).
