It's bleeding obvious but it's not ubiquitous, so either no-one has thought about doing it like that or no-one has done it.

All it needs is a little div, about the same size and shape as the godawful recaptcha thing, that allows the site owner to easily wire it up to accept context-sensitive user names and passwords.  Sites that currently do things like that don't exist (from what I've seen), and pre-written password-entry scripts are mostly unsafe, too simple, or so complicated to use that you might as well write your own -- and making them context sensitive would be an exercise in futility, because they only do the easy bit.

You want better: write it, sell it.

Don't give it away, because many business don't like trusting this kind of security to unsupported freeware.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
