i'd also like to take this moment to again point out that there is a big 
difference between having one username to login to different parts of a 
site, and actually logging in one time for all parts of the site.

most of this thread has just been about merging tabular user data, but 
my original question was about getting other applications in the same 
site to recognize that a user was already authenticated inside 
application X.
