    Market is Google's, so they use a gmail account to identify you. You don't have to use the account for anything more than Market if you don't want to, although a gmail address isn't like an aol address - everyone uses them now. If you don't want to play with 2 email accounts (and it's trivial in most email programs), just have your gmail account automatically forward all email to your "real" account.
