Here's the problem:  if I have code auto-login (or auto-insert my
username into openid fields), then remote sites can grab it and see
who I am without authorizing it.  Simply attach an event handler to
the text box, or a timer that waits until after the plugin fires,

With that said, yeah, it'd be about four lines of Greasemonkey.
