I thought my version of SSHD *was* PAMified.  I was probably just mistaken.
It seems to handle shadowed passwords just fine, so maybe it had built-in
support for shadow/non-shadowed passwords?  Maybe it would break if I
switched to MD5?

Actually, now that I look at it, there is no /etc/pam.d/ssh*, so I guess
it isn't PAMified.  Was I just lucky and it supported shadow passwords
