Firstly, thanks for the help.

I've done this on a test platform, and I end up with a dialog box when I
log into the GUI, but hitting the cancel button still lets me in.

I DO NOT get a prompt when I ssh, nor do I get one from the text console
or tty consoles (ctl+F1 through ctl+F6).

Any ideas on implement this in those circumstances?

Have you tried implementing this by replacing the user's shell (in
/etc/passwd or equivalent) with your own wrapper script?

Hmmm...replace bash (or leave bash alone and replace the login shell in
/etc/passwd) with a script that calls bash if they say OK? No, I hadn't
thought of that. I'll try it on my test platform, and report back. It will
be interesting to see how Windows programs like putty and winscp handle

You can create a wrapper. I'll look into the allowing access even when clicking no/cancel.
