[wp-hackers] Should OpenID be in WP core?

There are allready a few OpenID plugins,

The problem it seems with that at present, is that it requires creating  
user accounts behind the scenes when a new openID user logs in.
Idealy with openID, you dont want to create an extra account for them, but  
aparantly, your forced to due to the way WP handles users(or something, i  
cant find the reference for that right now).

You might be better off just taking that plugin and extending/cleaning it  
up, i believe the author of that may've commented either here, or on trac  
about it sometime recently too.
