cracklib password check

Hello,  I was working on a Linux distribution implementing Heimdal.  
While I was looking at features to implement I came across the old 
cracklib patch.  After porting that to cracklib 2.8(a Redhatized and 
maintained cracklib), I realized that it was kind of silly to make two 
cracklib libraries.  Anyway, I have rewritten Linux-PAM's pam_cracklib 
(complete with krb5.conf fetching for the various hardening flags and a 
location for an old passwords file).   I need to test it more than just 
compiling, but is this useful to anyone?  Now that Heimdal is heavily 
working to integrate with SAMBA, is Heimdal the best place to be 
checking passwords for enterprises?
