This I don't understand. You'll be identified by myopenid.com as
ubernostrum.myopenid.com *anyway*, even if you first enter something
else. So why can't you just go ahead and associate
ubernostrum.myopenid.com with your PyPI account, and then use that
to login?

AFAICT, it's straight-forward to use.
