reserving another module name: pam_xauth



I'm reserving another module name.  pam_xauth will be called by su
(and other programs that do the same thing, presumably...) and will
forward xauth keys between users in a configurable way, manageable
(including disabling...) by the user running su and the user whose
identity is being assumed.  It will even remove keys on a closed
session when appropriate (but not when inappropriate).  To give
credit where credit is due, the original idea is Cristian's; I've
just figured out details...
