Which kind of defeats the purpose of PAM being a central configuration
for all your machine's security policies, doesn't it?  Isn't it nice
knowing that even if you've done everything just right in /etc/pam.d, it
might not matter because some parts of your system don't believe in PAM?

Someday soon, if Red Hat keeps taking Linux in this direction, every
config file in /etc will be like this, vestigial remains of a time when
Linux machines were setup similar to other UNIX systems, now no longer
used by any facility on your machine.  Hail, systemd!
