Duplicate External auth problem with several providers

    The current external auth system allows user to have only one provider.
    Since the primary key in xf_user_external_auth is user_id.
    External authes work good separately but when you try to associate existing account to new provider the new provider will replace the old provider:
        public function updateExternalAuthAssociation($provider$providerKey$userId$userProfileField null, array $extra null)
                INSERT INTO xf_user_external_auth
                    (provider, provider_key, user_id, extra_data)
                    (?, ?, ?, ?)
                    provider = VALUES(provider),
                    provider_key = VALUES(provider_key),
                    user_id = VALUES(user_id),
                    extra_data = VALUES(extra_data)
    , array($provider$providerKey$userIdserialize($extra)));
    I suggest to allow multiple provider auth, i.e. just to set primary as user_id-provider instead of user_id and change the method above.

    It will be useful for future functionality. For example, user will be able to tweet threads using twitter and upload pictures from facebook.
