We just launched an open source project (http://openacademic.org) 
centered around the use of Drupal, Moodle, Elgg, and Mediawiki in 
education -- we are using OpenID for SSO, with Drupal as an OpenID 
client -- we will be working with the existing Drupal OpenID module to 
make some upgrades/improvements -- we'd love to work with folks to get 
this done.

And hey, if we can get 5000 for Drupal in the process, so much the 
better :) --

 From reading the bounty page (http://iwantmyopenid.org/bounty), I see 
this: "Implement OpenID 2.0 support as a Relying Party (RP) or Identity 
Provider (IdP)" -- I'm assuming that for the bounty they want the app to 
work both as an OpenID client and server, but this seems to imply that 
just one would do it. Do they mean *and* instead of *or* ?

Anyways -- we will be moving ahead with this development, and would 
welcome any folks who want to help.
