I've replaced passwd with a combination of perl and expect that
authenticates a user and calls various other programs to set passwords.
(I've got samba encrypted passwords, apache passwords and APOP
passwords.) I also put a https front end on it, since the system
password for almost all the users is '*'. It's ugly and kludgey, but it
does work.
