It's certainly possible to use another authertication backend instead of the one bundled with Askbot by changing file.

Also it should be possible to add parameters to the askbot/deps/django_authopenid/ in the same way as others are added. Weibo uses OAuth1 or OAuth2, which are supported by the Askbot so it should be a matter of adding data.
