On the off chance that someone else knows the status of pam_mysql, or has
any additions they have made, I'd be interested in knowing what's up :-)

Thanks,

In http://outside.organic.com/mail-archives/mysql/Mar1998/0274.html you
mentioned that you were planning to release a more fully-featured
pam_mysql version. I downloaded the tarball from www.mysql.com, and it
seemed to be your original version.

Could you tell me what the status is? I am wanting add a number of
features, but I don't want to spend the time writing the code if you have
already done so. :)
	- Configuration should be read from two configuration files
	  (one public, the other one holding the account & password to
	  use). This would replace the present insecure & inflexible
	  use of #define's.
	- Optional password changing (using different
	  password hashes), account expiry.
	- Better logging.
	- Miscellaneous cleanups.

Thanks in advance,
-- Elliot
