Issue status update for http://drupal.org/node/24050

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    user system
 Category:     feature requests
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  gordon
 Reported by:  gordon
 Updated by:   Dries
 Status:       patch

Because the 403 page is configurable, this is already possible.  This
patch only makes it more convenient.  I tempted to say: "Won't commit,
but let's extend the form description a bit so it is clear this is
possible.".  That or we add a link to the login page (without the extra
setting), cfr. to what the comment module does.

If the user is anonymous, then the user will be presented with the login
page 'user/login' instead of a the 403 default page. If the user then
logins in and has access to the page they will then get redirected to
the page they were trying to access. If the user is already logged in
then they will get the defined 403 page.

With the standard system you cannot just set user/login as the 403 page
as you will not be redirected to the page that you were originally
requesting, but instead to the user page.

here is a newer version of the patch which adds an option to
admin/settings page so this functionality can be turned off and on.
