I'm having problems using the login filter.
Firstly, returning FALSE in the plugin filter function does not appear to be returned by exec_filter().
Secondly, any login filter needs information about the user, at least $USR, but better $data.

If the filter is called as follows, the plugin will have the user's details and can return the outcome of any checks:

	# do the username and password match?
	$allow = TRUE;
	exec_filter('login',[$data,&$allow]); // @filter login filter bool allow

In addition, the login-extras action would be easier to use if called before the render of the submit button, otherwise and extra fields will follow the button. The plugin could use some clever js or css to reposition its control, but that's unnecessary overhead.

Ignore my comment re $data - can use global, but return from filter is still and issue,

fixes #1235
oops uses loose comparison
moves login-extras before submit ( not sure if we have a standard for this )

Thanks, Shawn, I'd have never spotted that.
Login hook working as expected.

Yeah I have been using typed languages lately, I sometimes forget php is very loose
