I don't know, if the "market" is that large, as you see
from my example, there are currently not many packages,
that need this feature... but maybe others would start to
use that feature more...

Yeah. I think, it's currently too much work to make a
standalone package for it, but it would of course be nice,
if the utmp-code would be easy to extract from samba.

Like: Grab utmp.c, utmp.h, some snippet from aclocal.m4 and
acconfig.h and you are mostly done.
