This is intended behavior - unfortunately since there was no way to open the Sign In Page directly, we had to settle on just opening the top level settings page, and then we have to hope that the user clicks through to sign in, which is the topmost entry.

I'm not sure - Bryan worked with Stephan Leroux on it and I think they determined it wasn't going to happen. If you can make it happen Jean would love it! :)
