James Walker, as part of his Community Ambassador duties for the
Association, has agreed to take on the task of making a plan /
proposal for this. Please contact James Walker or myself to get
involved. Or just start porting / testing the OpenID Server code using
the issue queue if you wanna just go ahead and code.....

My suggestion about "backwards compatability" would be only having to
enter your d.o. username -- everything else would still continue with
OpenID authentication ... yes to marketing and education :P
