At the time, OpenBSD did it that way, and there was no great reason to do it
differently. Also, if the settings were moved to login.conf, then it's not
at all clear to me how the YP password setting should be handled. I'm almost
certian that neither login.conf nor the extended information in
master.password (such as: "login class") is YP friendly.
