2007-02-12 ogra: along the work on implementing such an auth mechanism i smbled over a bunch of issues with pam and pam_mount that should be adressed before. (a package needs to change files in /etc/pam.d/ via sed or replace them for a change in the selection of auth modules, there should be a more proper plugin mechanism for that, i'd like to prepare something in this direction before going on eith edubuntu-auth-server in feisty+1)
