Third party login mod (google, yahoo, twitter, soundcloud, etc)

I believe vbulletin desperately needs improvements to its login and registration system and I would to suggest a mod allowing users to either login using third party credentials like google, twitter, yahoo, soundcloud or the like. It could either connect their credentials to a local vbulletin account (like Facebook connect) or allow them to post as authenticated guests without having to do anything at all where they could start posting immediately...

I did some testing with a Java script commenting system which works similarly and participation levels shot up very significantly, although ultimately the system was detracting from vbulletin and had to be removed. My observation is there appear to be a lot of floating users out there who might participate in our forilums if it were made easier...

Anyway I would like to raise some interest around developing such a mod which I think could really help forum owner capitalize on the popularity of social media...

Highly agree that a 3rd party login mod is needed. Looking through your code you basically built this system already for Facebook, you just didn't take the additional step of making it easy for there to be OTHER 3rd party logins.

I'm going to join the plethora of other vB users who are hacking a solution to this problem, it seems silly. Add this feature please.
