Yep -- if you want this to scale infinitely, then run a central  
identity server (or use one of the systems you named as the master --  
there is a SXIP homesite module for Drupal, for instance) and then  
implement the membersite protocol for any system you want to share  
login information.

There aren't a lot of standalone identity servers yet, but most of  
them will run LDAP on the backend.
