    WordPress.org Admin

    Option 2.

    Why? Because all of WordPress’ important user functions and such are in the pluggable-functions.php file, and have thus been designed to be overridable. That is, a plugin could replace those functions and implement its own user login and authentication scheme.

    So with some knowledge of PHP, you could write a plugin that would bypass WordPress’ own user stuff and use your existing tables instead. Might not be particularly easy, mind you.
