I have been thinking about what to ask for, and it comes to mind that
browsers throw a special popup for 'basic authorization' with special
It would be great if there was a semantic html way to define the openid
login process, and if the browser supported it, it could report that via
<openid:login consumer_key='123456' signing_page='auth.php'
another option would be to do it in the header of any response
I have also been thinking of a way to authorize S3 files via openId, in
addition to the methods that amazon already supports.
Doing the login via an iframe seems like a bad idea, unless SSL had some
better rules for secure iFrames on SSL delivered parent pages.

Anton Freeman: Vincent! How are you doing this Vincent? How have you done
any of this? We have to go back.
Vincent: It's too late for that. We're closer to the other side.
Anton Freeman: What other side? You wanna drown us both?
Vincent: You wanna know how I did it? This is how I did it Anton. I never
saved anything for the swim back.
