That's why I never started working on PAM. I don't have time to scrape
documentation from places. If somebody (like you Eric) figures this out
and can combine some docs in a tarball I'll read through it. As usual I
want to know what I'm adding to a book (I'm responsible for whatever
content makes the book so I want to know what I'm adding so that means I
have to learn PAM at least the basics before it's added)
