There's no need to split out oauthdesktop for supporting headless. The problem is that we use python-gnomekeyring. For us to support headless, we'll have to switch to python-keyring, and handle storing tokens somewhere other than gnome-keyring on headless displays. However, none of this is going to happen for the Karmic packaging as it is frozen, and this change wouldn't be acceptable in an SRU.

For Lucid, we should have a more robust authenticaton service, which should allow us to support headless displays better.
