	I forget the raw details; but AFAIR they are something like this:

	* only a single auth method is possible for gerrit via plugins
	* OpenID seems the least lame of these
	* there are other OpenID providers:
		+ Fedora, LaunchPad, Verisign, <others>

	But yes - I loathe yet-another-account - the 'web' seems essentially
pathetic when it come to identity - beyond awful. I blame people like
the Mozilla foundation FWIW for not standardizing & un-screwing-up
something that appears trivial to users that have enjoyed the power of
ssh keys for access control for a decade or more. My hope would be that
