Hi Nick,

This thread is old, but MTD is now upon us alas. I think HMRC have
updated the auth process since your last commit, so I'm wondering if
you have a later version of this? I currently have a copy of Stansoft,
which is in C for linux and uses ncurses rather than a gui and is a
little clunky, but I'm definitely interested in doing this in perl,
either as part of lsmb or on top of Dancer. 

Best regards
