I've used this for a few clients who wanted to share login info and  
user profiles across a few sites.  It requires WP table and MySQL  
knowledge, and some code, depending on how you want permissions to  
work.  I've actually been kicking around a few ideas for making this  
into a plugin to make things like copying permissions from one blog  
to another doable without custom MySQL queries.  This would be  
strictly for the 2-10 blog market.  Anything more and it's time to  
look at MU.

With any luck, a client will require it, and I'll get paid to write  
the plugin, which I'll push for being a GPL affair, but until then,  
if you'd like to contact me off-list, I can point you in the right
