Oh.  I did that for the BSD-PAM port, using the same code from the
FreeBSD login(1).  The (original) code is shockingly bad, but it
does appear to work 8)

I'm not so sure.  I think that keeping one ruleset per module will
discourage people from duplicating PAM functionality in the
modules themselves.

I can just imagine a combined "policy" module that enforces 
things like login times, ttys, etc. requiring configuration
as to the service type/policy item combinations.
