OAuth access to IMAP/SMTP in Gmail

...another entry from Google on the "Openness" aspect of their solution.  They have implemented OAuth IMAP/SMTP for Gmail.  So instead of you having to pass a 3rd party website your username and password credentials, you can use OAuth to be able to authorize that 3rd party website to access the information in Gmail.  Nice Approach there I think.
