I've thought of a way..
When a partner wants to link to a service on our site he creates or gets
a script off us that:
1. resides on their server, the user calls this script.
2. calls a url on our server, passing username, partner info and some
key, gets back a session ID.
3. then redirects the user to a URL with the session ID appended on at
4. when user visits our site he gets a cookie in his browser!
part 2 above is done by the server without the user knowing.
Hopefully I can get coerce phplib to do the above :)
I still have the trouble of getting user info, but that's almost trivial
compared to the above IMO.
