A few things come to mind:

1. Adding password changing functions to pam-ssh who allow it to almost
completely replace /etc/shadow for authentication purposes.

2. A PAM module for keeping passwords in sync across several machines
(in different administrative domains), when changing a password, it
ssh's to the relevant machines and changes them there as well.

3. A PAM module that makes use of Linux's capabilities system.

4. A PAM module that Linux-vserver or similar isolation systems to give
the user a private process namespace and potentially a private view of
the filesystem (sort of like Plan 9) when they log on.
