I have abandoned the update as I have been advised that a new architecture is coming which will handle authentication via plug-ins and as such the core developers would rather not add functionality to this area.

I would suggest you get involved in shaping how that works with plugins.  I know it was a planned feature back when I was still working on Mantis and the plugin system, but afaik there's no one else left doing work on the plugin system, so you could have a lot of impact in that area if you are interested in it.
