I think you would have to set up a registration authority. Each forum
would have its own nonpersistent cookie. When you enter a forum, you would
enter your global username/password, which you've set up on the
registration server. A background process would run verification against
the registration server (protected HTTP/Curl, SOAP/XML or maybe something
akin to a DNS query like the RBLs use) and return a go/no go. If go, the
forum sets a cookie. If no go, you're thrown to the registration server to
create an account after X numbers of tries.
