Hi David,

Setting the following in your community_wsgi.ini file should enable remote 
authentication in the tool shed.  Features like this that are available in 
Galaxy itself are usually also available in the tool shed (and function the 
same way) since the code base supporting the features is shared across both 
applications.  Let us know if you bump into problems with this, but please keep 
all communication on the dev list.

# User authentication can be delegated to an upstream proxy server (usually
# Apache).  The upstream proxy should set a REMOTE_USER header in the request.
# Enabling remote user disables regular logins.  For more information, see:
# http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/Config/Apache%20Proxy
use_remote_user = True
