AFAIK the only options for storing passwords when using PAM+shadow
(pam_unix.so) are crypt and MD5. Is anyone looking into increasing this?

E.g. OpenBSD uses blowfish supplied by pam_tcb. It seems this isn't
available for Ubuntu (or for that matter any of the popular distros, OWL
is the only one I am aware of).
