Spammer?
There is a "Domm" in the chat-popup on the linked site.

There looks to me as if there maybe some security issues around using this as a means of logging in to phpBB boards. Also I cannot see what advantage this has over using "Remember me".

The website does not tell anything.
How does this work exactly?
phpBB requires username and password. Will this be stored at fast.co instead? How does the button know who I am?

How would this work if phpBB's "allow e-mail re-use" is enabled?

I guess this will never go into the core of phpBB.
So, easiest way to make it available to phpBB-boards is creating a extension. phpBB already provides a oauth interface, so maybe you can connect your system via oauth?
You'll find the developer documentation on area51, together with other usefull imformation.

:oops: didn' t see the forum he postet in . From his wording I assumed a core change request.
The linked website doesn't provide any information without registration, so it's hard to guess how that system works. Therefore my hint to the already existing OAuth interface within phpBB.
