Is there any reason not to just make openid-php for the PHP libraries,
along with later openid-python, openid-java, etc?
This keeps the library development somewhat decentralized, which I think
will be useful moving forward as maintainers change, etc. (It would be
annoying if the Python library maintainer had to go through the board to
get a new maintainer added to the project, for example.)
Even if it's just bug tracking, I don't really see the advantage of
having the issues for the PHP library in the same tracker as the issues
for the Python library, or indeed the OpenID website itself; that'll
just make it harder to find the bugs that are of interest.
