I took a swipe at doing this (totally not tested; how does one develop/test this stuff?). I know just a tiny bit of python, but the code was fairly readable. Please see the attached patch -- is it anywhere close to correct?

User.get_full_name() would still need to be re-done. How does one fetch Google account info like that?

Yep -- am not worried about that. MTT data submits don't have to be super speedy. If a local verification takes (say) .01 second, and a google account verification takes 1 second (or even a few seconds), I don't think it'll matter.
