If any good soul out there may forward me a copy of this despicable
SlackBuild I will see personally in reporting back why the Slack Police
ought to scan our machines for any trace of Swiss cheese on routine basis.

I suppose I can throw my opinion at this. I haven't looked at this
script. Not because of the author, not because it's PAM. I have no
problem with PAM, and I think citing old security flaws as reasoning
is silly. Mainstream distributions are getting along fine, and it
affords them Nice Things that Slackware just Can't Have.

That said, if Slackware is to get PAM, I'd much rather see it come from
PV or his team. I think it integrates too tightly with the system for
it to be something we host at SBo.
