I have never worked with C::C::Auth or Twitter Bootstrap. So please ignore
me if my comment is not helpful...

If you just need to add something to the form definition, isn't it
possible to just subclass HFH::Form::Login, add or modify whatever you
need, and configure C::C::Auth to use your own Form class instead of

in your form:

  package LoginForm::Bootstrap;
  use HTML::FormHandler::Moose;
  extends 'HTML::FormHandlerX::Form::Login';
  with 'HTML::FormHandler::Widget::Theme::BootstrapFormMessages';
  has '+widget_wrapper' => ( default => 'Bootstrap' );
  has '+is_html5' => (default=>1);
  use namespace::autoclean;

and in your config:


        form_handler   LoginForm::Bootstrap

cheers, Lukas
