I thought there must have been this kind of discussion before, but

Your point is well taken. I guess with the size of the code in

http://openid.net/ is pretty cool. I haven't gone through the specs.

Just goes to show, any good idea that is worth having is probably  
implemented by someone else ;) I guess I should have googled :) Ah well.

Thanks for the response.
