If you ask Apache to run your code first, the proprietary module
shouldn't be able to prevent yours from being run. You should be able
to make sure that your own logic runs for the expired password case
and just DECLINE for everything else.

IMO an auth_checker probably shouldn't return DECLINED if it can
lookup a user and specifically find they have an expired password --
could you make a case to IBM for the behavior you ultimately want?
