Great news, Jonathan! I've been on the standards side of identity,  
looking at lots of evolving networks. James Walker recently checked  
in the 4.7 version of SXIP (http://drupal.org/project/sxip), and he's  
written a couple of other authentication schemes in Drupal -- it's  
probably best to get in touch with him for code-level questions.

My view is that core Drupal-auth should be switched out at some point  
with an alternate system, since it is insecure by default. OpenID is  
my top candidate for this role.

Thanks for getting on the list...looking forward to some more  
discussion about this...
