I have automated some testing of our product, using it's web UI with
Python with urllib2 and urrlib. I don't actually fill in the forms, I
just recreate the post and set the values of the post variables (so I
don't get any form validation).

Check out:
urllib2.build_opener
urllib2.HTTPCookieProcessor
urllib2.Request
