I know this is going to be unpopular but I'd definitely advise *just*
integrating identi.ca/StatusNet into the page. It's a FaiF service that is
at the same (and I'd argue even above the) usability level of Twitter and if
we are going to take our freedom mandate seriously we should try to
encourage it's use wherever we can.

Just a personal opinion.
