If you've got working, debugged code that works in the manner you
are espousing, and still achieves the same goal of making NSS and PAM
work everywhere, I'm sure we'd all love to see it.
In the absence of any code contribution to the contrary, I see no
alternative than the method that has been selected. Sure, it's not
great. Sure, it's slower (more or less, depending on which
benchmarks you believe).
But it is the best implementation that was available, and this is
-CURRENT, where things are expected to periodically be in a state of
flux while major changes are underway.
