   What requests a username and password? I think you mean your browser or your keychain requests
that. That is your operating system asking you if you want to add it to your keychain I think.

Ah! if you want to login to Clerezza with a WebID from another site then you don't
need an account on Clerezza. You just go to clerrezza on your https port and your 
browser will ask you for a certificate. You will then be identify on clerezza.

For the moment that does not seem to give you access to very much though on a 
default installation of clerezza. We should have something the user can do when he logs in.
Perhaps at least be able to see his profile panel from the point of view of clerezza?
(Just opened CLEREZZA-516 for this)
I just update the test suite so that it is easier to start in ZZ
but you can see this working

That is not very exciting I must admit!

It would be useful if we had a blogging engine ship by default with zz, then 
webid could be used to login and leave comments for example.

Also the login name is ugly. ( I just opened CLEREZZA-515 for that )
