I don't understand what you're trying to do. The whole point of open
ID is delegating authorization to a third party. If you want, you can
provide that service as well, but once you've enabled OpenID, you
shouldn't need a password for Mailman. In fact, the Mailman password
should be disabled, as it is certainly less secure than OpenID at this
point in time.

The OpenID project has OpenID-enabled Mailman lists, but according to
Brad Knowles in the process of adapting Mailman to OpenID they broke a
lot of other features, and integrating their changes is non-trivial.
