I think that we should have a function which tries to login and return the status whether that logging in is successful. What we currently do (for example in APISite.deletepage()) is that we "try: site.login(sysop=True) except pywikibot.NoUsername: blah blah" Isn't it better to have something like "if site.loginABC(sysop=True): blah blah else: blah blah"

So, I write this email to ask two things.
First, should we have site.loginABC()?
Second, if we should have that function, what should be the name of that function?

(see also http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/pywikipedia-bugs/2014-January/007200.html; I think we need site.loginABC() there instead of site.logged_in())
