Interestingly enough, SkyDrive authentication doesn't work if you try to do it using the regular web APIs (there is an issue with the format of cookies that it uses) - but Microsoft provides special-purpose APIs for SkyDrive that do get the job done and only crash occasionally. DropBox oAuth works fine because its keys, nonces, etc. are limited to a restricted character set; other oAuth implementations might not be so fortunate. I will certainly keep DropBox support; SkyDrive might be dropped, if its stability doesn't improve in Windows Phone 8.
