My idea is ...

Create flowcharts and *basic* examples for OpenID implementation.

The JanRain library is way to overcomplicated and obfuscated to easily implement into a website. I found myself extremely confused as to what the library was doing or how OpenID really worked behind the scenes. It'd be great if this was a lot simpler, and there were some example documents (as in the result of what a website should return) showing different situations and how those translate into documents. Flowcharts could also be created to explain exactly the process of an OpenID login (not just from a basic viewpoint, but the actual HTTP calls that are made).
