It is already working, that's just currently overlapping with zarb.org
accounts ( ie, most plf peoples already have such account, so does
frozen-bubble one and others ). 

The issue is not a technical problem, but a organizational one. Ie who
should receive such aliases, and who decide this.

More ever, the beliefs that only official will have a impact is not
really in line with the empowerment of the community that should fuel
the project IMHO.
