Cool! Here's a question that just occurred to me, though:
the Apache site uses virtual hosts. For hackish reasons, the
system passwords are all of the form username-domain-tld,
for instance 'johnsmith-example-com' for user johnsmith on
example.com. If I set up Apache to authenticate using PAM,
will every shell user be authenticated within every virtual
host? I only want johnsmith-example-com to have access to
the virtual host example.com, not the virtual host foo.com.

Thanks for any advice.
