As you probably already know, the best way to do that is to use the Yadis
service discovery protocol when implementing support for a given identity
protocol.  The latest release of our PHP libraries use Yadis for discovery.
The current release of the Drupal module only does OpenID, but it can be
modified to do Yadis directly and dispatch to OpenID or whatever else is
available.  This is not trivial, however.
