In that case, it would be much easier to record your true openid (i.e.
the one that your provider is able to validate). You can then enter the
alias that you are used to, and PyPI would map that right away to the
verifiable ID, and log you in with that.

For this to work, you would have to upgrade your web page to OpenID 2,
as this is the only protocol that PyPI supports.
