Experimenting with the Google OAuth2 API (they have docs and examples at
http://code.google.com/apis/accounts/docs/OAuth2.html), I think it may
be possible to extract the bootstrap auth code from the HTML <title>
tag.  The title is filled in before any Javascript is run--it comes back
in the HTTP response.  I don't know if that will work in the general
case, as you say, but at least for that one big provider it would be
possible to parse that part of the interaction.
