I've just reviewed Bèr Kessels' sql_auth.module, and it looks like it can
handle many use cases of authentication from external sources. Thanks for
pointing it out.
It would still be nice to be able to specify the hash algorithm used in
Drupal's own users table, perhaps even in a manner similar to how Bèr allows
it for external tables in this module.
One of the biggest challenges, it seems, is simply learning what is available
out there and what the capabilities and limitations are for all those contrib
modules. There's just so many of them, it's tough to be familiar with them
all. This is a good problem to have, one might say.
