I've never been entirely happy with OpenID on userbase.  However, as far as I 
know you should be able to ignore the blogspot one and add a gmail one, 
associating it with your existing account on kde sites.

Well, I just tried creating an openid account using my gmail address.  It took 
me to the page where you can associate it with another account on the wiki, 
but I didn't succeed in making the association- it kept telling me that the 
password was wrong.  You could try this page:

and see if you have any more luck than I did.  OpenID is a great idea, but it 
seems far from perfect.
