This PAM module can use the password that user has just typed. 

Several people asked me about some thing like this, to mount remote NT 
volumes @ login (and unmount them over logout, of course). I didn't found any 
other module or program that did the thing this way (i.e. without kepping 
passwords in some file etc.), so I wrote one.

It is a 0.0.1 (alpha) release, and module still has a lot of debug printf()s, 
but it seems to work well. I expect to collect wishes and ideas to improve 
the module. It can be found at
