+pam_localuser:
+ Succeeds iff the PAM_USER is listed in /etc/passwd. This seems to be a
+ common policy need (allowing only a subset of network-wide users, and
+ any locally-defined users, to access services). Simpler than using
+ awk to generate a file for use with pam_listfile (-F: '{print $1}'),
+ I guess.
+
+RECOGNIZED ARGUMENTS:
+ debug write debugging messages to syslog
+ passwd=FILE scan FILE instead of /etc/passwd
+
+MODULE SERVICES PROVIDED:
+ auth,account scan the FILE (/etc/passwd by default) and return
+ a success code if an entry is found for the user
