Shotgun as a Single Sign-On provider (e.g. via OAuth)

It seems there are some ways to tie Shotgun authentication into other systems for installed clients, but it would be awesome if there was some sort of hook for us hosted users.

In particular, I am very interested in a method for the current user to be transmitted, tamper-proof, to 3rd party sites that are either linked to from Shotgun, or embedded as URL panels.

An OAuth API would perform admirably for this purpose.

    OAuth would be great.  For those serving their Action Menu Items on a Web server, oAuth would offer a way to seamlessly authenticate the session with shotgun.  Currently, after clicking an Action Menu Item, users are prompted to login separately on the Web server.
