Have you considered this.

Two WP installs

One in the root
One in the blog folder

You can share the user tables between the two and I suspect that you  
can do similar things to what bbPress does and share cookies so that  
you only have to log in once.

You could then use some of the hooks available to change the menu  
items such that if you go to posts on the site handling pages it takes  
you to the other sites admin seamlessly
