Is there a defined interface for using Magento as part of another Application?

First a little background on what I am looking for (which I don’t think is the web services interface).

I need to use Magento as part of bigger application.  The bigger application uses zend framework also, and has lots of ajax calls, using the normal zend framework rewriter application structure.  To be able to include Magento in this I don’t see a way I can make it a module in my bigger application.  But I can install it in a subdir of my public folder.  My first instinct is to use the Magento user management and login.  I also want to leverage the CMS system for the bigger app.  Are there interfaces predefined to handle this case, or will I need to call find the appropriate models and call the methods on them directly?

Also I want to leverage the admin, is there a way to add in a couple admin modules that won’t require editing the admin code?

Thanks

jFusion looks like an interesting project, but it isn’t quite what I need.  I am not looking to merge the login of magento with another product.  I have some custom code that magento needs to become a module with in it.  The login for my custom code will be the Magento login.  I am just looking for the proper place to tie it into the project.  Do I use magento models directly from the custom code, or is there a define interface like the web services interface fo make magento part of another application - A programming API.
