I would not recommend XesAuthUserDbase for a "single sign-on"
scenario. It's intended for stand-alone use... unless you want users
to be able to change their passwords and get password reminders from
the wiki instead of (or in addition to) vbulletin. I also require
extra SQL fields to hold email address, validation code and
In a situation where another program controls the sign-on data, I
think the original AuthUserDbase is the safe bet.
I will be working with Ben at some point to consolidate the recipes
in the future. At that point there may be a switch, I guess, for
stand-alone vs. borrowing authentication from an external application.
