Hi *,
I have something like

map.connect 'people/:username', :controller => 'account', :action =>

in my routes.rb and obviously if the user isn't logged it defaults to
the login screen.
I'd like to be able to fetch the :username and display it in the
opposite input field inside my login page, but I don't know how to do
it. For example '' should insert 'ngw' as
username inside the login form.
Suggestions ?
