How can one link/merge/combine/associate two accounts/users? (Anonymous/unregistered/cookie or OpenID/registered)

I used Stack Overflow for some time, but never registered. That account is here: http://stackoverflow.com/users/342369/b-i-d

Then I wanted to vote on an answer and learned that I have to register. So I made an account via openid using the same username and email. That one is here: http://stackoverflow.com/users/461711/b-i-d

Is there a way to get the reputation of my "old" account into the new one or do I have to work my way up the ladder again?

There should be an easier way to transfer an account from unregistered to registered.

Great. AFTER writing this question there is a link with the answer in How can one link/merge/combine/associate two accounts/users? (Anonymous/unregistered/cookie or OpenID/registered)

Answer: Write an email to team@stackoverflow.com

But the feature-request part is still valid: There should be an easier way, that doesn't require you to write emails to the team.

You could always flag one of your posts for moderator attention and explain in that. Site moderators (not necessarily SO employees) can also merge accounts. –  ChrisF Oct 2 '10 at 23:39
