Yes, that would be a good idea, I'll try to get a basic OpenID login
working and see how it would integrate with the django auth backend.

I'm not too familiar with Trac and how to authenticate users in Django
from Trac's backend. From what I've gathered by searching the interwebs
is that people usually try to implement things the other way i.e Trac
authentication using Django's auth backend. Maybe we can have both
OpenID and Trac authentication working, I'll look into it thanks for the
suggestions :)
