Advice - "multiDB" for multi networks but sharing common user tables in global db

If i run a wp/bp multisite and multinetwork, and i wanted all "sub networks" and blogs of those networks to run their own "db's" BUT i wanted all to share say the wp_users and wp_usersmeta tables from one common global db... which would be the best way to go about this? Multi-DB plugin? Preferably i would like each "network" to have its own db, but share common users and any related user info e.g. meta info and i guess buddypress tables (eg friends lists would present some issues"

    Hello there @greg_mcewan_marriott, I hope you're well today!

    The multi-db plugin allows specific blogs to have their own database, but I'm not sure it can do the same for a whole network... I have notified the plugin developer on this one, hopefully their insights will help us figure this one out.

    Please keep in mind though that plugin developers have a lot of responsibilities so this could take a bit longer than a normal ticket.
