So you have a hard time believing something as massive as switching to
OpenID can be done, but you reckon everyone switching to the One True

It can't hurt, but it's not really that easy - there's not one single

decision. It'd be quite hard to get a decision making quorum for each of
the top ten distros (especially Debian...) in a channel at once.
