PAM actually has a very flexible configuration language.  The extended
syntax (see section 4.1 of the System Administrators' Guide for the full
details) lets you customize the logic in a particular configuration file
to cover every case I could think of.

The different options that each module takes, combined with the
flexibility of the enhanced syntax, just makes it hard to parse and edit
PAM configurations dependably in software.
