I'm interested in the topic as well and completely agree with Jared
that there's some overlap, which is also why the issue shouldn't go
into 1.2. OpenID4J shouldn't be on the critical path to 1.2 either,
it's a new support module.

Thanks Les for putting in the work and sorry I didn't have time to
participate much this time around. My time has started to free up from
hectic development on the day job but other open source commitments
keep sucking all of it so far. I'm running multiple projects against
1.2.0 snapshot and I've got a lot of releases pending, so the timing
for Shiro 1.2 is excellent.
