Hooks to enable custom login without editing core files

One of the basic features of wordpress is to avoid having users edit core files.
It is impossible to properly customise wp-login without manually editing the file directly - not good for upgrades!

Need to make login_header function pluggable or add a do_action hook before the <html....> tag
Need to add a login_footer.

In fact what is required was highlighted in #4478 complete with diff file. This was marked as resolved BUT IT WAS NOT! I agree it might be a duplicate of issue #9682 BUT the underlying issue of being able to overwrite the login-header function WAS NOT solved.

(see recent support forum requests #252094 and #333994)

The solution MUST allow a replacement of login header (and even better also a replacement of the </body></html> tags from the switch statement with a login_footer function which could also be overrided - pluggable).


In an ideal world need to re-open #4478 to ensure accurate resolution.
