The hard part here is handling application-authorisation. For example,
for Flickr, it's not enough to have a login/password combo, you also
need to allow the framework/application access to the account.

You'll also see that both libsocialweb and bisho (the "config panel" for
libsocialweb) have quite a lot of that code, including oauth helpers. It
would certainly make sense to split it out of libsocialweb in this case.
