Reading https://bitbucket.org/Dalius/authopenid-plugin/wiki/Home I conclude
we should be able to provide a mapping service to the OpenID module which
maps openIDs to internal user accounts. My idea would be to allow users to
create an .openid file in their home directories; these files could be
concatenated by the mapping service on every request when the cache is older
than 15 minutes - or something alike.

All we need now is someone to develop the service.
