External DB authentication

A plugin that allows the use of an external MySQL, PostgreSQL, or MSSQL database for authentication into wordpress. It requires you know the encryption method for the passwords stored in the external database and allows you to use MD5, SHA1, plaintext, or enter the hash/salt method yourself. It disables password reset/retrieval and account creation within the wordpress system on the user-end, and it doesn't allow updating from the wordpress end back into the external authentication source.
