I just wanted to mention that I lose access to my RS/6000s in a couple of
weeks, so if someone wants to look at merging the password expiry support
(or even just the AIX-specific parts), now would be a good time.

I suspect what's required is:
1) Split out the Buffer login_message stuff and make it an OpenBSD patch.
2) Sync that to -portable, merge the portable bits from bug #463.
3) Merge the rest (either AIX only or AIX + shadow).

If this is possible, let me know what needs to be done and I'll make time
for it.

If it more desirable to merge the platform-specific bit in separate
patches, I suggest alphabetically by platform :-).

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