This gives me an idea... yesterday I discussed integration of OpenID in 
all Ubuntu wikis, like it is already tested here: 
https://testwiki.ubuntu.com/ (try to connect and you will see). The 
final aim is to use the same launchpad ID everything...
I suggest thinking ahead and integrating this technology in the support 
points map now, before it becomes the "usual" way of registering for 
Ubuntu activities...
