DESCRIPTION
     These functions are OpenPAM extensions to the PAM API.  Those named
     pam_*() are, in the author's opinion, logical and necessary extensions to
     the standard API, while those named openpam_*() are either simple conve‐
     nience functions, or functions intimately tied to OpenPAM implementation
     details, and therefore not well suited to standardization.
