Subject gonna yank apr_get_user_passwd()... scream if needed
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2001 11:55:09 GMT
This function doesn't work on many/most current Unix boxes (think
"shadow") and the concept is not portable to many other platforms
either.

You just can't count on retrieving the password for a user, and even
when you can you can't count on the encryption method (if any).

I thought this was going to be replaced by something which was
provided a user id and password and attempted to valid it.  At least
that is more generally available.
