I would think that if you had a method where you passed it a domain name and 
the browser cleared the authentication for that domain, that should be 
enough.

Something like:

browser.clearCredentials("http(s)://someDomain.com");

Then we wouldn't have to define what a login (button, link or whatever) 
looked like.  You'd just have to run it through a javascript inside your web 
page prior to linking to the new page.
