If you're making the HTTP requests yourself somehow then you can avoid 
having to act as a web server (and all of the associated annoyance with 
firewalls) by just parsing the query string out of the "Location:" 
header in the OpenID response.

I had a prototype of this against the original OpenID protocol, but I 
never did try it against the new protocol. I can't even find the source 
code now. :(
