I've got plans to try to tackle this problem and get a better idea of
the solution, but here's the traditional answer:

1) Move your code into an extension (here's an example of an app that
became a public extension http://ext.radiantcms.org/extensions/12-ba )
2) Run 2 applications ( move your authentication/authorization outside
of the 2 apps and have them live side-by-side )
3) Edit radiant code directly and run it as an app (DON'T DO THIS, you
will run into trouble as the projects progress)

And what I'd like to try is

4) Use a radiant instance and add the Rails.root app directories into
the load path (they aren't there by default) and move all your code
over there. The hiccups here are surely going to be in loading routes,
but perhaps elsewhere.

That's what I want to try. If you beat me to it, please reply with
details. This is a common problem and I'd like to make it easier to do
this in the core.
