“Copy Profile From Stack Overflow” didn't copy alternate OpenID

In a few hours, I will deactivate what has been my OpenID on all Stack Exchange sites. Is there a way to copy a new OpenID to all my accounts, or do I have to do it manually? I tried using the "Copy Profile To Related Accounts" feature, but it doesn't seem to copy the OpenID.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The copy my profile function should copy the main OpenID profile, but will not copy the alternate OpenID. Are you sure that the main OpenID is not being copied? – Adam Davis May 4 '11 at 23:37
@Adam Just tried it again and it didn't work. – Kyle Cronin May 4 '11 at 23:44
@adam this is now possible, see my edit – Jeff Atwood Jun 7 '11 at 1:52
@jeff hurray for freakish examples like us! – Adam Davis Jun 7 '11 at 2:25

There's now a "Copy {Site} login credentials to all Stack Exchange accounts" button on the account tab of your user page now:

@adam outside of freakish examples like us, it is exceedingly rare for users to have accounts on more than a few sites. – Jeff Atwood May 4 '11 at 23:56
True, true. – Adam Davis May 4 '11 at 23:59
I'll admit I'm a bit of a special case - there was a time when I was creating an account on every single site that was created. (Looks like I'm up to 49) – Kyle Cronin May 5 '11 at 0:37

Obviously Jeff is right, but if you're going through and fixing them all anyway and you have a domain you control, you might want to make it an OpenID delegate and use that. Then if you ever need to change the backing OpenID provider again, you just change where your domain points and it works automatically

For some providers, according to I Can't Log In With My OpenID — Troubleshooting Tips, one might need some more HTML than the 2 lines shown in the 1.1 specs linked above. See also the 2.0 specs, but these still do not mention the <meta> tag that myOpenID apparently needs too. – Arjan May 5 '11 at 9:39
