I just got an email from Adsense telling me I have to change my adsense login to a Google Account, is this a new thing?

We will soon be requiring all our publishers to update their logins to a Google Account . This change will provide you with enhanced security and will make it more convenient for you to use other Google products with just one account.

I've been using my Google Account for AdSense since quite some time now... but many of us weren't able to switch that, so I guess they can now...

<<!Note: We're not able to update logins to Gmail or Google Account addresses at this time. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. >>

So, how can I change my login to be my Google Account if they're not able to do it?

I don't have a Google Account for the mail address I use for AdSense. They never forced me to use a Google Account.
