Well, that 'could' allow PunBB to lookup usernames and passwords from 
the MediaWiki database instead. That would need two things: Some coding 
in the auth script of PunBB and permission to do lookups on MW database.

Just a wild thought: Is the database already accessible from outside the 
UAC network? If so, TomH could create a read-only account that can be 
used by the current PunBB installation. Gut feeling says 'no' though :)
