There's nothing to reconsider.

This will be done :)

I like the idea that you pick a username/password for the client.

Agreed. For example, none of the twitter client support OAuth now, so OpenID on laconica sites could have been thought of as useless. But, oauth is being introduced, and eventually all the clients will support it, then the username/password login can go away - and OpenID will really shine.

libre.fm could take the same approach. Support OpenID now, and gradually increase its usefulness.

I don't think this should be marked as wontfix just because you can't use it with the music clients. There are a load of other uses.

It still makes it easier for me to register, because I don't have to fill in all the standardstuff I always fill in.

Plus, you can fetch my avatar.

It will make it easier for me to login to the libre.fm-site, because I don't need to remember a password. If I need to find my client username and password I can find it when logged in.

Or maybe the ID? Since I'm using OpenID, I might not need to make a login name at all, you can give me an ID and a random password at signup.

It'll make the signup quick, but the real value lies in «not yet another omigawd login».
I surely hope you'll reconsider this. And if not, please give a real explanation.

Please support OpenID based registration and login. This makes using the site so much quicker and easier.
