 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.
