I also suspect that many, possibly most, users used the same email address and password on all parts of the site anyway, so the "security" of forcing people to create separate accounts is illusory.
The move to a single sign-on was discussed at length both on and 
off-line.  It was decided NOT to implement such a feature because if 
your Forum logon, for instance, was cracked, so was your Bugzilla and 
Applications Database.  Some of the older users found that 
unacceptable.  As a Information Security Specialist, I found that 
unacceptable as well.  We require, in my workplace, separate logins for 
each system a user accesses, specifically to address that case.
