[development] How to Log in a user

I formatted the shopping cart to look really nice and added some graphics. I 
also created a quick buy block that interfaces with the shopping cart to 
allow a user to click once and checkout at the same time. As well is my 
latest invention. The ability to register your user in the cart and continue 
the checkout process without having to check their e-mail and have to come 
back to login, taking the same checkout steps over again. I also integrated 
the drupal_get_destination code from 4.7 into 4.6. 

It all works great. I am not finished my hacking but I believe that this cart 
is by far more functional and user friendly. Are my hacks of interest to 
drupal? If so I would like to help give back. Please let me know.
