Well, you are not the only one who contributed features ;)
We merged a lot of them and even more bugfixes. But our time is limited and 
all of us are working in their free time.

Unfortunately the patch is (code wise) not in a state that we want for 
TYPO3, nor can we rewrite it in short time.
Therefore we push it back in our priority queue.

I did not give you detailed feedback yet, therefor here in short:
We would like to have less arrays in TYPO3, but more objects. For an idea of 
what I mean, please take a look at the (merged) gridelements dataprovider 
patch and compare the revision from Olli with the one before that from Jo 

Eventually, we should aim to rewrite the whole backend login script and 
change that to fluid if possible. Maybe you can already start with that so 
we have a working version early next year?

Send me a PM if you need help.

In the meantime, you can xclass the login from class and override it inside 
your extension. This is not pretty, but I do not expect many changes in the 
login form code.
Watch out for some changes in the RSA handling that might come until final
