Well, if by "web services" you mean SOAP, then I don't know. But the 
GMailAuthPlugin (which is really just a demonstrator), the Salesforce 
connector, the OpenID plugin, and the LibertyAuthPlugin could be called 
using web services. Maybe the CAS plugin counts.

If you can communicate with the auth source in Python, it's definite 
fodder for a PAS plugin.
