Negative limits for pam_cracklib



Are there any plans to incorporate the feature of using negative limits
in pam_cracklib on Red Hat Linux? This feature has been added to
SourceForge 8 months ago.

By using negative limits you can define the minimum number of digits,
upper case letters, etc. that must be met for a new password.
For example you can say that a password must have a length of at least 8
characters and x number of digits etc.. This is currently not possible 
with pam_cracklib that comes with Red Hat.

pam_cracklib on Red Hat Linux only uses positive numbers which defines
credits that you can get for meeting the minimum password length.
