I'm sure we'll need code changes to make this scheme work.  I just
want the code changes to be in the right place.

One thing to note is that SELinux may actually change where the
right places to make changes are, and how to make the changes.
This may have everything to do with roles and nothing to do with
the root user!

Uh, I have used pam_xauth primarily with root-squashed NFS home
directories; that's how I developed it in the first place.  This
doesn't make sense to me.  Can you be more explicit about the
failure mode you have observed?
