One site account, multiple OpenID identities

If you're adding OpenID to your site then please allow your users to add as many of their OpenID identities as they want to their account.

I've got a few identities I use so adding a couple to sites that are important to me means I'm not reliant on a single OpenID provider being available when I need it. It's a simple form of fault tolerance.

Multiple identities can also be a way to allow an account on a particular site to be shared by multiple people, each with their own authentication credentials.
