    Cool plugin, good work.

    Looking in the code, it appears that it would be easy to associate a fbuid with an existing account, allowing current blog users to enjoy the benefits of this plugin, but there doesn't appear to be a way to do that so far. Are you considering that, or would you welcome patches to support that?

    Oh Yeah!
    That would be great. I've been looking for something like that for a long time.

    Also it would be cool if you could optionally make new members fill in some information about them selves.

    This is easy to do from a technical perspective but I haven't thought through all of the messaging to explain the consequences to the user. For example, if I'm an anonymous commenter and I Connect my account the name will update on all past comments to be my real name. That could be pretty bad if the user expects them to stay anonymous.

    It sounds like there's clearly some interest in this feature so I'll add it to the TODO list. Thanks,
