EzProxy and OCLC

ResourceShelf posted that EZproxy, used to access services--such as databases, remotely, has been acquired by OCLC. Interestingly OCLC states that they will link EZproxy up to Worldcat.org to, in the words of the press release:

"Additionally, OCLC is planning to connect local instances of EZproxy to WorldCat.org, creating new value for licensees and their users. By surfacing EZproxy in WorldCat.org, end users outside of the library will have better access to library collections and services through WorldCat."

I wonder if this will require any extra work on those that use EZproxy.
