WebID is the most widely deployed ID system on the web (facebook use it).
TLS for identity is widely used, and has critical mass in some areas.  eg
estonia most people use it for banking, web services, and even voting.

Finland is the next country to roll this out.  You know, Finland.  The same
guys the brought us linux.

I'm sure you'd have given that no chance either at the start ... :)

WebID-TLS take the best of both these systems.

The main reason we're not using WebID here is for social reasons, (sadly)
people not being able to get along ...
