OpenID Auth for agents and "bots"

I've posted on the OpenID Wiki a simple proposal for doing OpenID auth 
using normal HTTP authentication. This is intended as a solution for 
non-human agents and bots to authenticate themselves more easily.


Note that this is not meant to address authentication of human users in 
non-browser apps, though I have included this as a possible extension in 
the notes at the end of the page.

Please let me know what you think.
