This class can be used to authenticate users with Yahoo accounts.

It can generate an URL in an Yahoo site that the users must visit to authenticate and authorize your site to have access to Yahoo Web services on behalf of the authenticated user.

Once the user authenticates and authorizes the site, the class retrieves credentials that can be used to send Web service request to different Yahoo APIs on behalf the authenticated user.

Sometimes it is useful for a site to obtain certain personal details of an user to offer a more specific service or content depending on those details, like for instance his age, country, gender, etc..

Yahoo can provide such details about an user if he agrees to supply it to a given site.

This class uses the Yahoo BBAuth service to provide access to other sites to details about an Yahoo user upon a process of prior consent given by the user specifically to the sites he wants.
