Hi thanks Raphael, thanks for this. I also managed to find an OpenId 
server in python also so this part is looking quite doable. There is 
also an example implementation for django. The unanswered question for 
me on the OpenId concept is how one manages user public and private 
context. For example, if I am an employee in a an org would I have an 
OpenId here as well as one for myself privately - need to do some more 
reading and perhaps subscribe to their list. I have to read a bit more 
on what this means as far as security, trust or whether there is any 
loss of autonomy for closely managing users as a result. Many thanks.
