I'm not sure. The closest thing I've seen so far was a change to add
GitHub OAuth support but it was abandoned:


The following discussions provide a bit more background:


From those threads it seems that the GitHub OAuth 2.0 patch was abandoned as it wasn't "pluggable", and that they are going to come back with a pluggable version.

It also seems that they will have to support OAuth 2.0 in general (which Google+ can be configured to work as), as that's where everyone is heading according to the list in one thread.
