Hi All.
	Today a patch was commited to OpenSSH that performs PAM password 
changes via SSH2 keyboard-interactive authentication.  I should work 
fine with privsep, which some of the other solutions have problems with.

	While the patch itself is relatively small, it's bigger than it should 
have been due to differences in PAM implementations.

	I encourage anyone with a interest in this to try a snapshot [1] 
(20031219 or later) and report success or failure here.

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
