So let me understand:

you say sam will not be in 3.0
you see currently passdb has been made so that nobody like it and is not

but you also say we should not end up using a correct solution because
you want to maintain the status quo?

We have to fix passdb or sam, just let decide on which one we should
work on or go for a third way.
