I don't think that it is very usefull to implement this for every
PAM module again. I wrote a pam_pwcheck module some time ago which
makes a lot of checkings and could be stacked with pam_unix, pam_ldap
and whatever else exists, it has also the remember option implemented.

This makes it much easier if a bug is found: only one module needs to
be fixed, not XY one.
