In 11378:

Login: Disable the Core login language selector, through a rather low-level filter.

There are no filters available to disable the login language selector, so instead we make WordPress believe there are no languages available on the front-end wp-login.php display, which hides the selector, but still loads our custom login localisation files.

See #5850.

In 11379:

Login: Replace the call to wp_login_form() with a static form so that we can customise the content.

wp_login_form() isn't the same as wp-login.php and isn't as easy to customise; By removing it we'll be able to add things that wp-login.php has such as a show password button.

See #5850.
