My OpenID is "www.b-list.org". "ubernostrum.myopenid.com" is simply a
local name my provider uses to refer to me, and may change in the
future if I change providers. I'd like PyPI to let me use my *real*
OpenID, and not force me to use something tied to a particular
provider; this is kinda the whole point of OpenID delegation.
