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.
