I know there was one proposal
(http://lists.danga.com/pipermail/yadis/2005-June/000851.html) to allow a
third-party impersonation system (or that's how I interpreted it anyway) but
it wasn't really picked up. A plug-in should be able to piggy-back on top of
something like that rather easy to provide identity without needing the user
to still be logged into their account.
On a totally unrelated note, my new threads seem to start under an already
existing thread in the archives. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, weird.
