Armin added OpenID support. My only changes have been to add a nice
OpenID endpoint selector (e.g. so you can just click the Google button
to use your Google login) and to change the text input format from
WikiCreole (which has bad preformatted text support for code snippets)
to GitHub-flavored Markdown (which has reasonable preformatted text
support).
