that's fine with me, though I feel like we should keep the distinction between
sign-in and registration. I'm not sure about that, since when one as an openid account
but never signed into the site, his account will be created the first time he sign-in.
I'm simply afraid that people won't think clicking on the sign-in link will allow them
to create an account.
