Google Account Authentication

So they did it. I've been waiting for this for ages. There is a catch of course. All your data are belong to Google. What's missing here is the ability for third party ID servers to use the same protocol and to federate among themselves. But it should be possible for people to reverse engineer it and create that.

Now when will Google allow you to merge all the different identities you have so that it recognises that they all belong to the same person? I think I've got about 10 Google accounts now. It's extremely annoying when I'm logged into one because I was using Google Analytics and I then want to check the Calendar that is associated with the gmail/googletalk account.

I wonder how long it will be before Drupal can use this to login and create accounts?
