Integrating BlogEngine Authorization with Existing Authorization (or Allowing Them to Co-Exist)

I've got BlogEngine installed and integrated into an existing web site, but discovered a hitch. The web site already contains a sub-system that was imported years ago. That old sub-system was configured to rely on our primary login, but on one page it uses WebParts, and to enable those web parts it creates a whole system of custom MembershipProvider, PersonalizationProvider, ProfileProvider, and WebPartManager.

As things stand, the BlogEngine authorization and personalization are fighting with that poorly understood customized authorization. How much would be involved in adapting the BlogEngine authorization so that it could piggyback on another system, or at least co-exist?
