Authenticate using WordPress

This is partially a 'request', partially a 'where can I look into doing this myself' type-o-request.

Wordpress already has my authentication data, I'd simply love to hook Trac up to it.

If someone's interested in doing this, so much the better. If not, I might dabble with it. Can someone point me at some good resources for learning how to start on this endeavour?

Seeing as wordpress uses its own PHP-based session layer, I doubt you could easily. You would have to make an authentication plugin (look at AccountManagerPlugin, DbAuthPlugin, and TracCasPlugin for examples) that groks whatever PHP uses for session tracking.

This is very possible. If you use your wordpress URL is an OpenID. There are plugins for Wordpress that make it an OpenID provider. AuthOpenIdPlugin allows to use the authentication on your trac site. Voila.
