PAM_RHOST and reverse hostname lookups

we had some discussions about my s3-auth patchset. We don't want to introduce
a new dependency in the auth system and get rid of some old ones.
Currently we're doing reverse hostname lookups in s3-auth to set PAM_RHOST. As
reverse lookups are disabled by default and PAM_RHOST is only really used by
two modules (pam_rhosts.so and pam_abl.so (auto blacklisting) and else just
for auditing I would like to suggest to set PAM_RHOST always to the ip
Do you think we can do this change?
