While we're on the integration subject, would anyone happen to know  
if there is currently a project towards having integration between  
self-hosted blogs and wordpress.com/.org user accounts?

IE: Something like my upcoming wpDirAuth (LDAP/S) or the OpenID  
plugins that would let users with account on Wordpress.com/.org login  
to your self-hosted blog through an API handshake (could auto-create  
an account record locally, like other plugins do). When I say .org, I  
mean codex accounts, etc, not accounts from other self-hosted  
instances (allthough that's feasible too, but more complicated).

Although I understand the tech and security implications, I do think  
it'd be pretty cool.
The user base is obviously large enough to justify the effort (IMHO). :)
