Of course - see Sean's proposal. I guess the test framework wouldn't be
too tightly coupled to Geeklog anyway.

Yeah, you can do it. But there's a difference between looking what
library X does when some value comes in as 42 instead of the expected
255 and copying entire algorithms. But then again OpenID is a defined
protocol and there are only so many ways to implement it. So just take
this as a reminder not to be too liberal about these things, tempting as
it may be.

That's understandable of course and also applies to all the other
students posting their proposals here. Just add it when you submit it to
the webapp.

bye, Dirk
