I don't know Tru64, but I'm sending this letter from an AIX box running
Linux-PAM :) And I do not think that the AIX Loadable Security
Authentication Module system would be better than PAM. It integrates more
functionality, but it has some big drawbacks (you cannot define different
authentication services for different applications).
