I started that work, the Drupal 4.6 version. Looks like James is
getting it fired up on 4.7 which is great.

One of the goals of this work is to get OpenID into Drupal core. So
not only does the code have to be "Drupalish", it also needs to be
GPL'd. Nothing against the JanRain libraries, and not even wanting to
reinvent the wheel .. but it wouldn't be accepted into Drupal core

Although, as I think someone on the list mentioned months ago, having
more implementations does help us discover how readable the specs are.
