For the record, OpenBSD looked at Slackware's solution and ported it
to bsd_auth. it can't possibly be that hard to adapt slock to just
about any auth backend without going through all this idiocy. slock
was written for people who don't need to log in with a goddamn retinal
scanner, and I hope to god people one day stop cramming 'features'
into simple software. I'm talking to you, dmenu
