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
*) echo >&3 "reject"
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.
