Neato. Am I right in assuming that this only works with a clui client like
stock ftp, since onces that make more assumptions about the protocol get
tripped up? Is there some specially hacked GUI client that works with that
server too? 

I'm just thinking that if you're going to take the time to do such a hack,
maybe it could work the same way...

Now, in terms of the hack itself, I think the thing is that you could rely
on pam for the opie code, use the pam calls that you're used to, but
you'll need to be smart enough to grab those extra prompts that the module
is going to want to kick out and send 'em off to the client (wrapped in
the 230/330/whatever status lines), etc. I dunno a whole heck of a lot
about this, so I'll shut up now. ;-)
