Re: Pam_mkhomedir

Although, one could probably hack pam_mkhomedir to send a message to a 
UNIX socket, where the other end of the socket is a daemon, running as 
root, which queues requests for making home directories.  After the 
proper checks have been performed, the daemon creates the home 
directory for the user and -- voila.  It would only take a second (if 
that) to process the request.  You'd have to be really security-conscious
with regard to the implementation, but it could be done without too much work.
