there is only support thru PAM right now.  i had started a
multi-platform password interface last year, and while it was close to
the point of being integrated, i have been side-tracked with stuff that
was more interesting to work on.  adding just code to run passwd if the
password has expired isn't hard, and maybe we should do that.
