setting openid realm

What is the best way to set the realm parameter in askbot, for the openid login?

Reason: Google openid apparently does "directed identity", which means the returned id is different for different return_to urls (even for the same google account). Very undesirable.

Goal: I'd like the openid to be unique across our entire site, by setting realm=http://*

It is a very useful parameter, we had this problem for a while - could not port openid logins between subdomains, apparently this is the way to do it.
