pam_unix or pam_pwdb?



The way I see it:
first there was pam_unix. It was lacking many features. Then came pam_pwdb,
which has support for db file format, as well as NIS.
THEN, glibc-2.1 got a decent NSS, and pam_unix could suddently be used for
many different authentication formats (file, db, nis, ldap w/o shadow, etc).
pam_pwdb remains the same.

So, is pam_unix again the best one to use?
