[Cubicweb] multiple CubicWeb instances and authentication

It have now understood how to have CubicWeb delegate authentication to 
Apache (CubicWeb/trustedauth), and how to have Apache delegate 
login/password management to CubicWeb (Apache/mod_authn_dbd).

The above works fine in the case of a single CubicWeb instance.

In the case of multiple CubicWeb instances, how to use the same CWUsers 
in multiple CubicWeb instances? Even putting aside Apache, trustedauth 
and mod_authn_dbd, do we have to delegate authentication to an external 
database such as LDAP? Could we manage CWUsers in a central CubicWeb 
instance that would be somehow used by other CubicWeb instances?
