OpenID in Blogger (Soon)

Thanks to Maseko, i found out that Blogger will (soon) support OpenID for comments. Unfortunately, they don't have any plan (yet) for supporting OpenID for registrations. It will be a good one if they could implement this also.

Short descriptions about OpenID (taken from Wikipedia):
OpenID is a decentralized single sign-on system. Using OpenID-enabled sites, web users do not need to remember traditional authentication tokens such as username and password. Instead, they only need to be previously registered on a website with an OpenID "identity provider" (IdP). Since OpenID is decentralized, any website can employ OpenID software as a way for users to sign in; OpenID solves the problem without relying on any centralized website to confirm digital identity.
