"Work around" what?  I mean, if they don't want to use PAM module X,
then don't configure that PAM module.  If they want traditional Unix
password authentication, then they just use that PAM module.  If they
want to use BSD Auth, then they use the BSD Auth PAM module.

So far it still sounds like your reason is, "it chaps my ass" ... and
I guess I'm having a hard time working up any sympathy for that concern.
