just wondering if I read this right: while OAuth provides a way to
give a 3rd party access to an account without the password, it does
not provide a way to simply establish the identity of a Twitter user,
without giving away the rights?

The only reason I would need access to the account is to make a post
in the name of the user. But that could easily be solved with a
"twitter this"-link instead. So I think it is a bit of a pity that I
can not just authenticate somebody without asking them to give me
power over their account.
