This is good to see - thanks Martin! I've been playing with the OpenID support 
in Moin in both the consumer and provider senses, and this is another area 
where I have patches that I might try and push upstream:

* The login form is a bit confused: the OpenID field should really stand 
alone. Actually, the provision of login fields is generally a bit incoherent, 
in my view.

* I found a very small issue with de-association where a piece of request API 
usage wasn't migrated to the new API in Moin 1.9.

* If one wants to have user home pages under a common prefix (which isn't the 
case with wiki.python.org, but is on other sites), several changes are 
required to the home page detection and to the OpenID identity-serving code, 
if used.

I think I've already said that it would be nice to let people have the Wiki 
serve OpenID identities, but I suppose this would really only be useful if 
the ambition were a bit greater around making python.org more of a common 
community portal experience.
