Hmm.  How would you specify authentication methods?  It would seem only
reasonable to use 'login.conf' for them, at which point, the provided model
does authentication.

I'm uncomfortable with doing PAM unless someone can show me how a non-suid
program can do authentication that requires suid using it.
