What version of Roller are you using?  The newest code (not even sure
if this is in a shipping version or not) has the authentication
abstracted out using the UserManager interface, so you can implement
a custom UserManager and wire it in, in order to authenticate against
an external source at the API level.

I just went through the exercise of writing a custom UserManager like 
this, as part of the initiative to integrate Roller with OpenQabal... I 
was planning to write up a blog post explaining the whole thing, in all
it's gory details. I'll try to make it a point to get that up soon in
case it will be of benefit here.
