    This is the interface for the store objects the OpenID library
    uses.  It is a single class that provides all of the persistence
    mechanisms that the OpenID library needs, for both servers and
    consumers.

    @change: Version 2.0 removed the C{storeNonce}, C{getAuthKey}, and C{isDumb}
        methods, and changed the behavior of the C{L{useNonce}} method
        to support one-way nonces.  It added C{L{cleanupNonces}},
        C{L{cleanupAssociations}}, and C{L{cleanup}}.

        association is expired.

        If no handle is specified, the store may return any
        association which matches the server URL.  If multiple
        associations are valid, the recommended return value for this
        method is the one most recently issued.

        expired associations when found. This method must not return
        expired associations.
