Just wanted to say thanks for all the excellent responses on this.  
We're evaluating the options with our admins now. Honestly, the apache- 
based solutions do sound pretty painful, especially given that this is  
a cpanel-based server and it will mean some pretty deep tinkering with  
the default vhost setup/generation internals. Sounds like changes in  
2.8 may make it feasible to get a patch for forcing OpenID logins, and  
that's sounding more attractive all the time in terms of not having to  
mess with our server setup too much.

Thanks all,
