If you create a port of it, consider adding a run dependency to my
little helper and providing a PAM service policy calling it, example is
in the manpage of the port :) (some screen lockers already do that)

Note I consider this whole thing a bug (just like LinuxPAM's workaround
is a bug), but the "sane" solution, providing some authentication
service for the local passwd database that pam_unix could use, would be
a *lot* of work ...
