Thanks for retrying the Dan's argument again.

How many lines-of-code are there in NetBSD's PAM implementation?

ZERO. It doesn't exist yet.

Please complain about aspects of the API, which somewhat exists, (i.e.
to be able to use existing PAM modules, some set of functions _must_ be
implemented) if you can.
