Latest project: curl-based login

I've often wanted to check for status updates behind login-protected pages, which doesn't work properly with RSS based solutions. Many programs, like Page2RSS would work for standard pages, but not for login based ones. For this purpose, I'm currently working on a curl-based solution that should login, and check for updates to a page. I'm not sure if I'll actually be able to make RSS feeds out of that, but regardless I should be able to do a unix script to make a desktop alert. Here's hoping it all workes out allright.....
