Yes, that might make sense:

 1. If there is cached (via cookies) user info, use that and directly
    go to the main menu.

 1. Else if there is no cached user info and a default user set in the
    server config, use that default user.

 2. Else present the login screen.

Any volunteers to implement that?!? Patches highly welcome!
