I doubt I can convince you of how evil it is to send passwords in the

folks seeing that cvs support PAM and thinking for some reason that it
is not leaking their passwords in a large number of ways.

PAM also works with telnet. I don't think anyone thinks a PAM enabled login
via telnet is any more secure than an ordinary passwd based login.
