The updated Perl modules for OpenID were only released a few hours ago
and (I assume) haven't gone live on LiveJournal yet. I've also not
updated my simple guestbook app yet, though I imagine it should be
trivial to do so and I will likely do it shortly. Once I've done that
you'll be able to use the guestbook for testing if you'd like.
