yes. that was the simple version. At the end of the email I propose  
something a little more general, which does not require different  
representations to be returned, but allows for more information to be  
present in different files. A more sophisticated version of

What about:

<> more:infoAt [ forGroup FriendsOfMyFriends;
                 see <http://bblfish.net/people/card/henryFriends>;
                 login </login>],
	       [ forGroup Family;
                 see <http://bblfish.net/people/card/henryFamily>;
                 login </login>] .

</login> a OpenidLoginService .
