pwdb question



		Hello

	Now, since pwdb shoud handle all accesses to the password
databases, shouldn't all applications be linked against libpwdb? Since
everybody speaks about the slowliness of a box with more than 2k users,
one can think of moving the entire /etc/passwd model to a different thing
(like gdbm or sql). Probably pwdb should do this, but a quick check showed
me that wu-ftpd, ipop3 and all other usual servers are NOT pwdb-aware. I
know, it would take a HUGE amount of work to do it; should somebody do it?

Best wishes,

						Mihai
