Currently, main forum authenticates directly against LDAP, including some 
group mapping.

We have discussed then need for SSO capabilities, but so far no-one has 
indicated *which* one (e.g. OpenId or Oauth) we should use (e.g. supported by 
the clients we envisage).

It looks like it shouldn't be too much (development on identity) work to add 
OAuth2 provider support (CatalystX::OAuth2::Provider.), but I haven't spent 
much time trying to understand OAuth2.
