say i have an ident on google with, then i sign up to another oauth2 provider with that as my username (if allowed). then i could authenticate with either provider. this would be a problem; i.e. idents need to be unique across *every single oauth2 implementor'.

i guess this is why you should only allow people to authenticate with a small number of providers, or alternatively identify users in your database by their identifier and the provider, not just the id.
