Would it be possible to be able to login or consolidate two (or more)
different OpenID?

For example, I would like to identify myself using GMail or Livejournal OpenID.

I think that "skill cloud" would be nice so I can add my new skills
(packages, programs, domain specific knowledge) as I acquire them (or
write them).

If we provide some links associated with tags, it would be possible to
classify skills according to their relevance to haskell community.
