If there are incompatibilities, they're small.

I have to say, I *love* the BSD Authentication system.  It's awfully
convenient, and I've had several occasions to write authentication scripts,
which could be pretty hugely arbitrary:
	case `date +%d` in
	*[13579])	echo >&3 "reject"
			exit 1
	exec /usr/libexec/login_passwd "$@"
Is "login_noodddays".  Unless I made a typo.  I've seen "login only during
business hours" or "only outside business hours" used in the wild.
