(Since they would have already done an apache login).  I feel lame about

Yes. We have a monster patch ready for Gnatsweb 4.x which will be applied by the end of this week, and this version will be able to use the "remote user" parameter set at browser login. You'll just need to set a single config parameter at the start of the Gnatsweb script. However, I am not planning to backport this to version 2 of Gnatsweb, so you'll need to jump up to GNATS 4 in order to use the new Gantsweb. Backporting would probably not be hard (I don't quite remember exactly what the patch does wrt. this), but I try to use the spare cycles I have to help getting GNATS 4 out of the door.
