[wp-hackers] BackPress for SSO with non-WP sites

I've got a custom PHP project built on CodeIgniter.

Would it make sense to use BackPress for an easy SSO implementation between
WordPress and that site?

The idea is that someone logged into WordPress is auto-logged into that
other site.

Also, that a user logging into that site, is auto-logged into the WordPress

If they were both WP sites, I could use shared cookies and some
wp-config.php vars to specify the "master domain", etc. But what's best

A penny for your thoughts ;)
