Now that my point is guaranteed to be buried under irrelevancies so that the hail-Linux status quo can be maintained:

No, I didn't intend to attack you. I just get REALLY REALLY FRUSTRATED when a project that *used* to pride itself on its portability to so many systems takes the attitude that "it works on Linux, that's good enough". I inferred Red Hat from the fact that I pointed out that Kerberos and AFS support in PAM is iffy *even on Linux* and it was completely ignored --- after all, it "works fine" in Red Hat 7 if you only care about Red Hat's Kerberos 5 support... (and I've been following the Kerberos situation in Debian and it's slightly better but AFAIK {kth-krb,MIT krb5,heimdal}+{OpenAFS,Arla} via PAM is still difficult to get right in all cases).
