No.  You can write your own module as Eric suggests.  Personally I
would do the session/cookies thing since my next project might be too
different to use a module.  Of course if your site is mainly static
HTML pages the module may be the better way to go.

At some point you also have to ask at what point does the added
complexity of this outweigh the minor convenience for your users.
Remember, users can have their browsers remember passwords so you would
generally be asking them to type in a login and password once.
