If all you want is the ability to use your username@fastmail.fm in an openid url then you can do it since FastMail allows hosting webpages as username.fastmail.fm (or any other Fastmail domain or own domain hosted at FastMail). Instructions on how to do it can be found on the web (I searched Google now and found this and this). I haven't tried it myself, though. You still need an openid provider that runs an openid server to authenticate. FastMail doesn't offer this and it may be a good idea to offer this service.
