In gl2 we can handle the ability to share user bases across sites by 
simply implementing an account manager to do this.   As you might guess, 
the entire log in process is isolated so that it can be easily 
extended/modified to suit the needs of a particular site.  You could do 
a simple webservice call to have one GL site remotely authenticate to 
another GL site or use the same method for doing it local (though it 
would be unneeded HTTP overhead).
