Well, it's just PHP, so anything is possible. But I'm pretty sure that 
what you are requesting is not possible with the present code.

Users may be present in source A or B, or maybe A and B. How are you 
handling the overlap? How are you going to decide which source to try 

You can make it happen, but I suspect you're going to have to code it up 

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
