Given the existence of Florian's awesome OOJsUIAjaxLogin extension, which actually works, looks modern and isn't a horrible pile of hacks on top of hacks, I'm going to say that AjaxLogin is deprecated in favor of OOJsUIAjaxLogin and thus I'm declining this task.

@ashley It will be cool if you could update the extension's pages accordingly. I know that's painful but that's where users land in the first place. Done now as a service. Anyways, thanks for dealing with this task and giving the status update.
