    (1) A TELNET server that supports such a feature could send IAC DO
    SEND-USERNAME (a new option I just made up) before sending the
    "login:" prompt. If the client supports this it will respond with IAC
    WILL SEND-USERNAME and then uses the subnegotiation mechanism to send
    the name. The server would then bypass the normal login prompt and
    log the user in, subject to access checks like those rlogin does.

Actually, I think this capability is already defined in TELNET. Take a look at
RFC927 for the details.
