 From my understanding I think we mostly agree and want the same thing, 
only have to find a common ground how to exactly implement it in a nice 
and extensible way.

I would have loved to already have done a voice call with you, to get to 
an agreement while talking instead of writing, but unfortunately ran out 
of time before my holidays from which I right now returned.

I also know the specs pretty well, as I just finished a nice customer 
project doing an own implementation as the TYPO3 extension did not fit 
our needs.

Let's just set up a meeting next week (this week would be too tough for 
me) so we can talk about the fix and future plans for what we intend to 
ship as OpenID implementation for TYPO3.

Can you set up a doodle making suggestions for an online appointment? 
Next week I can schedule pretty much every time as I do not have fixed
