Is it possible for a module to give the application more information about 
an authentication?

I'm using pam_krb5 and I want to be able to distinguish between someone 
failing authentication because of a bad password and failing because the 
clocks are out of sync. It's not feasible to run something to synchronize 
the clocks at this time. But it would be great if PAM could somehow tell 
the application how the failure happens.

At the moment pam_krb5 just returns PAM_AUTH_FAIL to PAM. Is there some 
way to pass along extra information that could be returned to the 
application?

Thanks.
