I can't see a reason besides the time factor, just requires someone to
actually write it.

I can deal with that, I'm just glad that others agree that there is an
issue and it is something that should be dealt with.

So what is next? Who codes this portable BSD auth? I'm interested by BSD
auth but haven't found a ton of information on it (besides the man pages
which just give function information).
