[development] Creating multiple login blocks with, different validation rules.

Thanks for the answer and that's one of the things to do, but my problem
at the moment with that path is that in hook_form_alter there doesn't
seem to be anything that I can use to identify which block it is. Am I
missing something obvious?
If there is nothing in the $form then what I think I actually want to do
is use some code to generate the form and as I have access to the $form
array to put in my own validation rule or hidden $form element or
whatever to distinguish between the different blocks. So I'm trying to
generate the user_login_block myself so I can alter the $form array but
can't get it to work. In my block code if I call
drupal_get_form('user_login_block') for the block content everything is
fine but I can't alter the form object. So I'm trying to do the same
steps as drupal_get_form, i.e. the code below and the user login block
displays but there is a bunch of stuff missing from it so it doesn't
Am I making this harder than I need to for what I'm trying to achieve?
$form_state = array();
$form = drupal_retrieve_form('user_login_block', $form_state);
drupal_prepare_form('user_login_block', $form, $form_state);
$block['content'] = drupal_render_form('user_login_block', $form);
