We try not to throw things into CVS just because someone thinks it would
be a good idea.  When lots of people tell us they are successfully using
a patch and would like it to be included in the standard distribution,
then we consider it.  (Of course, if some *developer* thinks it's a good
idea, the process does get considerably sortened.)  Now that we have an
"experimental" branch, there's a better chance of things getting
accepted there.

Well it just so happens that PAM in particular is mentioned on the wishlist of future enhancements (cvsclient.info) and also mentioned in the current password checking code as the right fix to a hack on HP/UX to get the encrypted password.
