+pam_localuser.so exists to help implement site-wide login policies, where
+they typically include a subset of the network's users and a few accounts
+that are local to a particular workstation. Using pam_localuser.so and
+pam_wheel.so or pam_listfile.so is an effective way to restrict access to
+either local users and/or a subset of the network's users.
+This could also be implemented using pam_listfile.so and a very short awk
+script invoked by cron, but it's common enough to have been separated out.
