Because when we started this thing I had a look at nsswitch code. It 
looked _so_ discouraging when I was thinking to hack it, that I have 
started to reimplement it again... But maybe if somebody feels brave 
enough (I still think I know what I am talking about :-), there is still 
work need to be done on nis module of the libpwdb...

Okay, the libpwdb interface is in it's final stage, I would like to 
think, and I think that if there are any ppl feeling like hack to add 
functionality, we will make a private release sooner than Linux-PAM 
release. Andrew ?

UNIX is user friendly. It's just selective about who its friends are.
