	It'd be great; there was even a patch created for this some time ago,
that has sadly bit-rotted:


"	Should email verification process still occur? 
      * There doesn't appear to be any way around it, as there's no way
        to query an OpenID server for an email address. "

	Doesn't fill me with deep-joy I must say :-)

	Actually, there is an updated patch in bugzilla's bugzilla:


	Unclear how to help focus minds there though :-) please do watch that
bug (requires a login ;->) and report back as/when it's merged.
