Congratulations. Youre the 3rd person to ask for this feature. Several of
us have been asking for this to be added for some time...

Someone wrote a patch to usermod to do this, you can find it at
http://ro.com/~cadams/files/shadow-980403-pwlock.patch

As to when it will be added to the official sources... who knows. :-/
