If I understand you correctly you are talking about using a mechanism
like OpenAuth? PyPI currently only provides OpenID support, not
OpenAuth. I don't recall there having been a discussion about adding
OpenAuth, though I certainly can't immediately think of a reason not
to add it (except that someone has to do it ;-)*


* if there is interest I could do it during the US PyCon sprints...
