Logging in should take me back to the page where I clicked the login link
Right now, it always takes me back to my profile. This is often an
interruption -- if I'm e.g. logging in to comment on someone's
photo, I then have to go to some other page to login, get sent to
my profile page, and then have to figure out how to get back to the
photo I wanted to comment on.
Ideally, logins ought to be entirely "in-place"--not require going
anywhere else. So the workflow would be: click upper-right login
link -> login fields appear via JS in the top right (or in an
overlay over the page, whichever) -> I enter my credentials and hit
the button -> Without refreshing, the page gets AJAXily updated to
reflect that I'm now logged in (different top-right links, 'edit'
links, comment fields, and the like appear in the appropriate
places on the page, etc), or a handy-dandy 'your login info didn't
work, foo'!' message appears in the top right.
