I think you missed the point. You may do libauthpam with -base or in a 
courier-authlib-pam.  I can live well with both ways.  Just choose one.
But I can't see any reason to support libauthpwd.  If we do, I'll ask 
you why we don't support libauthshadow.

As I point before, libauthpwd, libauthshadow and libauthpam are three 
modules to choose the one that better fits in your system.  And, in a 
FreeBSD system from 4.x and up, this is libauthpam.

I still have the feeling that you suppouses some inter-dependencies 
between those modules.  Allthough all three share some code, they are 
really independent.

I'll finish my actual work and mail/post it as I describe before.  Take 
what you like from this.
