Yes, I was thinking the same thing...

Can you just add

That by itself doesn't work.  It says I need to specify AuthType.  But I
have not idea what to set it to.  If I set it to "Basic", it prompts me for
a password.  So if you know what I need to put there, that would be great.

Oh, and don't forget to force SSL-only connections for mythweb if you're

Hmmm...is that really true?  My OpenID provider is VeriSign and I'm pretty
sure they only allow https for requests.
