I've got the yadis client going at foopad.com <http://foopad.com> - 
hopefully have it public tonight. There's some cool stuff you can do with 
the users foaf file too.

One way would be to create a new param on the call to the ID server:


Then when the ID server has confirmed the user wants to let
foopad.com<http://foopad.com>access their endpoint - the ID server
sends a message to the xml endpoint
(assuming you control it or can message it) saying 'let
http://foopad.com/write to the blog'. Then when
foopad.com <http://foopad.com> opens a metaweblog session, it sends the foaf 
url and a signature signed by the foopad.com <http://foopad.com> DSA key.

Sounds great.
