I think I might actually have a way forward with this. I have confirmed 
that the RT should have access to the cookie, and the cookie stores a 
loginID which is permanently unique and stored in the MySQL database 
against the users userID.

I *should*, theoretically, be able to pull that loginID, check it 
against the database entry to pull the userID and then log the user in 
(BEFORE the autocreate callback).

I *think* I could do this all from autohandler, but I'm not sure how 
secure it is to be running MySQL calls from autohandler..

/me continues to ponder options.
Kind Regards,
