That's great news, it might make sense to port the drupal implementation

The WebID project for Drupal is available at http://drupal.org/project/webid,
it includes a WebID provider module and a WebID authentification module. At
the moment both modules rely on the excellent MyProfile services to
delegate the verification during authentication, and also for generating
the certificate. That means that it's easy to setup WebID on Drupal,
without requiring site administrators to set up SSL on their server if they
don't want to or don't have the right access.

You can try WebID in Drupal at http://webid.openspring.net/. For example
you can log in using your WebID (please let me know if you encounter any
problem). You can also try the WebID provider by creating an account on
Drupal (the old fashion way), and then create a certificate for your Drupal
WebID. The screencast at [1] which will walk you through all these options.

For those of you who are in the Boston area, I'll be presenting WebID and
Drupal at the next Cambridge SemWeb meetup on Wed [2].
