I have these issues too and the only thing I knew to do was develop my own
user management system with a simple interface to other programs.  My
other programs are custom too.   I used Tim Perdue's user system as a code
base so I am duty bound to distribute my changes to the open source crowd

The real solution is to have the open-source crowd agree on a few user
management systems and then offer hooks into each.  So many projects have
their own home-grown user systems that re-inventing the wheel occurs

User Management is of sufficient importance that it really should have its
own legion of programmers concentrating on making it secure and useful to
other applications.

If any of you know more about this topic, please chime in with your
