you know, like "create view my_users as select * from 

to the OP: you may get around with authentication (which is a read-only 
process), but you won't be able to change user details, because mysql 
devs didn't think something like (sqlite code)

create trigger my_users_update instead of update on my_users
update other_database.wp_users set user_login = new.user_login, [...] 
where id = old.id;

would be useful (it's scheduled for 5.2, AFAIR)
