I'd like to change a user's shell based on group membership. The group

the shell, however, seems non-obvious. I've looked at the source code
of pam_unix and it provides the path to the users login shell
according to /etc/passwd, so it should be possible for a pam module to
set the shell to an arbitrary value, right?


No because it's the ssh daemon or the login process that sets the shell.
