Can I use server-side code to log in a user without bringing up the login/password popup?

It can be easily done with a simple PHP script that checks that the
entered information is identical with the information in the script.
The question is important as it allows the user, who are already logged
into the application using say database authentication, to access the
resources from a certain .htpasswd protected sub-directory. Is there no
one in the PHP world who can tackle this? Or is the PHP dumb?
