Here's an interesting piece of data.

I said Hey Doc, create an AWS account. I didn't tell him how to do it. I wanted to see what happened. He didn't succeed.

OK so this means to me that we need a piece of software. A rough idea of how it would work. The user signs on to their Amazon account, the one they use to buy socks, and then authorizes you to act on its behalf with AWS. Ideally that would feel, to the user, like giving access to an app to use their Twitter identity. From there, you create a pair of S3 buckets, one private and one public. Then you allow my software, Little Outliner, to access his bucket.

I don't know what all these steps are. But it should draw on a user's ability to create accounts on other popular services. I imagine it's what Amazon itself would create if they wanted to provide a service to non-developers. I imagine at this time they consider it a "developer opportunity."

I need this functionality as a go-between my users and my software. I don't want to store their stuff long-term, because I don't have a long-term. :-)

I'm hesitant to suggest this since it's not as versatile as S3, but it seems kind of close to what you describe (uses Amazon sign-in specifically):
