 Would something like johnbillion's suggestion be possible, with a
 lightweight auth lib, instead of all of WordPress?

 The primary thing that an admin would want to restrict by is user
 privileges, so it could just load and check them. To avoid many database
 hits, the first time could set a cookie with the user privileges (encrypt
 using AUTH_KEY or something similar, to make sure it can't be faked).
