i did setup that mediawiki-vanilla auth plugin originally, but:
a) its only a db merge, doesnt read the auth cookies
b) vanilla doesnt have stable a development timeline
c) WP does, and can manage roles with plugins
d) WP has a better UI

i really love vanilla as a forum, but i'll dump it for development's 
sake if i have too much trouble integrating the three.
