Hi Daniel,

Yesterday, I enabled OpenID on the armedbear project. trac now simply offers 2 login links: 1 for local account and one for openid. i haven't discovered how to associate the two yet.

Assuming it doesn't increase the spam load, I'd prefer using OpenID to 
creating a local trac account.

Curious whether OpenID accounts could be associated with local accounts as 
a bonus feature.
