Persona as a whole is said to be in Beta. It's mostly working pretty well.

What do you mean by "pass different providers in the login"?

The protocol is spec is completely but a little hacky. We want to do
another passthrough once the JOSE standards at the IETF are finished.
However, most of this is hidden in the shim implementation if you want
to be a Relying Party (i.e. make the login through your site work via
Persona). If you want to be/host an identity provider, I can recommend
this little library: ;)
