Not directly, we needed a few pieces of flexibility that openSAML didn't 
provide and also a stable SAML2 implementation a long time before Scott 
and others believed it would be so there is a Java and C++ SAML2 
compliant implementation from scratch as part of the release.

The ESOE however does integrate with shibboleth (and openID plus others 
which are planned) as part of its design, its very flexible to other 
identity solutions in that way.

How would sometime on the 18th May suit yourself and others? This is the 
Friday after JavaOne finishes and I will still be in the area at 
meetings and so forth.
