Hello world,

take a look at http://iwantmyopenid.org/.

"Soon we will be granting $5,000 USD directly to ten open-source  
projects that successfully implement OpenID."

I talked to Scott Kveten (CEO of Janrain) and Corey Shields (OSL) and  
they would be willing to wire the $5,000 USD directly to OSL so they  
can buy us an additional machine, something which we might need in  
the near future.

I think this makes for a good opportunity to implement OpenID into  
Drupal core, and to get rid of our own distributed authentication  
framework.  We talked about this earlier, and I believe there was a  
consensus about the fact we should adopt a standard.

I believe that OpenID is they way to go so even without a bounty it  
would be of "strategic importance".
