State of play on OpenID?

Hi all,

I was wondering where the LJ codebase was in regards to OpenID integration. At present, we're a sort of semi-consumer; you can log in with an OpenID identity, but not much else. Being able to tie an identity to an existing account would be a major plus, and an excellent step towards distributed identity management - bridging an identity with LJ-generated FOAF. Plus, does our codebase provide OpenID identities that can be used to log into other sites?

Cheers,

Earle.
