It should be, eventually, such that you could display it anywhere.
But it is still very young, and not anywhere near full functionality yet.

For now, you should be able to place a link on your login page to a
guest accessible version of mottle, so that people can get to it from
your login page.

You can also try to make it a block on your login summary page so you
see it directly after login.

It *may* evolve to that someday, but it is no where near that yet.

It might, but then again it might not.  The future of mottle is uncharted.
