Add support for Mozilla Persona
Persona (was called BrowserID) is a system powered by Mozilla which allow you to link your browser with e-mail addresses. See https://www.persona.org/ and https://github.com/mozilla/persona.org
Proposal by Flaburgan.

List of available pods.
@Jakob: Nice thought, but it'd probably be easier (and more efficient) to just directly link to podupti.me somewhere.
@Altruism: Apparently, there's a Drupal module for Persona: http://drupal.org/project/browserid
Dunno how good it is, will have to try it out. We also have to keep in mind that we want to keep our list of modules fairly light. The more modules you load and enable, the heavier the website gets.
We're also going to need some sort of Spam protection, so that bots don't end up trying to register and spam everywhere.
Sean, in a scale 1-10, how user friendly (new non-tech) do you think podupti.me is?
Sean, we are already testing Persona on the test site :)
It's not the prettiest-looking site, but it's a good service. Really, I'd have to at least give it an 8, with 10 being highest. It could be better, but it's functional, self-explanatory, and gets the job done.
I give it 3! And I feel generous today :)
Persona status on test site: I get "An unknown error occurred while attempting to validate your BrowserID login. After clicking "OK," you will be redirected to a page where you can log in without BrowserID or try logging in with BrowserID again."
