Subject Re: OAuth example

Gmail, Facebook etc fully or partially support OpenID to allow you to
use your Facebook or GMail OpenID to login to other services. OpenID
and OAuth 1.0 are separate things. CouchDB does not support OpenID.

There is a CouchDB-OpenID project on github but I've not tried it.
