Do you really want applications to be dynamically altering
/etc/pam.d/* files?  Seems hackish to me.  My application is
always in the safe domain, but that's not necessarily true
of all such applications.

If you want to do this with module arguments, we should at least
specify in the docs what the argument is called so that it is the
same across all applications.
