It looks like he@ (Havard Eidnes) is actually maintaining the package in wip (into which I merged your changes) and has updated it to the latest version. I propose handing this over to him to decide. My proposal is to import as is after the freeze (see below).

In general, there is nothing wrong with having all the stuff in one package. Merely installing a PAM and/or NSS library does not mean that you are going to use it. In both cases, you need to edit a configuration file to enable them.
