When I first started programming Twitter application using OAuth - I
thought that eventually it would open up to allow Third Party API
(TwitPic, TweetPhoto) to start using OAuth tokens to authenticate.
However - its been a while since this has gain any air.

Is this something that would should be seeing from third-party
services in the future? Thinking about it - your tokens authenticate
you only for that specific application with the consumer key and
consumer secret - how could it be possible to authenticate you on
another service?

If not - what's the point of OAuth? You can't integrate with other
Twitter Services without having the user sign in again.
