FWIW, my current thoughts on this are to use SHA1 hashes for
everything. Following attempting to allow various sorts of identities
with "identity strings," normalizing on hashes of some constant
followed by the identifying string gives an interchangable 160-bit
token that can be used without worrying about what it represents until
you care.
