And of course, it should be possible to reject a login altogether,
say if you don't want somebody logging in on a certain port, from
a certain host, at a certain time, whatever (all at the discretion
of the called external command of course). Perhaps the program should
get fds for the terminal (and the network connection, if any) so
that it could test or manipulate them.
