LibOAuth works well with identi.ca (both of them use the same OAuth 1.0
spec) it isn't introducing a regression. The problem is with BTI, which
is using the twitter OAuth links for identi.ca . It is an easy fix,
which gregor will commit soon.
It isn't any regression or something. The library works well with
Twitter and the same case is with Identi.ca.
