I've been looking at https://github.com/jdalrymple/gitbeaker

Using pas2js it should be relatively easy to make a small webpage that
recreates the mantis view. All it would need is a token or oauth key.

Such a page can be hosted on the FPC webserver. The browser would do all
other requests directly to gitlab, so this puts no load on the FPC
webserver except of the initial page request.
