I only adapted Al Longyear's ftpd pamification; I don't know
anything about it...  :-/

It's based on the patches that have shipped with Linux-PAM for many

I don't know enough about ftp or s/key to be much help there.  I
didn't even go through the ftpd patch to see how it worked; at the
time I applied it I thought that Al knew what he was doing, and since
it worked in every situation I tried it in, I didn't argue.

I don't know exactly what behavior you *want* from ftp, and I don't
quite understand where it went wrong; you'll have to read through the
ftp source to figure that out...

Good luck!
