action links in "post requires approval" or decent Mod Auth login form

Bug Description

I rarely have to approve any mails for my list. When I do, I have to remember (look up) the password. my browsers don't store form data when there is just a password field without account name.

I could just use an easy to remember password, but I'd rather let my browser keep a more secure one. that'd require at least a dummy username form field.

alternatively, how about a limited login link for just this pending message, straight from the "requires approval"-mail, so I'm authenticated not by password, but by virtue of having received the moderator email?

If you go to the private archive login page and log in with any email address and the list admin or moderator password, presumably your browser will remember it. Will it then fill it in on the admindb login page on a later visit? If not, you could always go to the 'private' page, log in there with the browser remembered email/password and then go to the admindb page where you'll already be authenticated.

I realize this is awkward, but it is a work around.
