On Linux there is a function getspnam which returns password hash
and on FreeBSD there is no such a function. However on FreeBSD
a function getpwnam when run as root returns user's password hash.
To make it clear I'm keen on PAM, but some software does not work with it.
The question is do we really need the present passwd structure.
Maybe we should resign from 'pw_passwd' and 'pw_class' fields
as they are not compatible with broadly used LDAP posixAccount and shadowAccount objectClasses.
