Which is has been.  Simo did the dirty work, and packaged my cracklib
code into an example app, and setup a 'script' hook to call it.  The
parameter missed documentation for a while, but should be in the latest
snapshot as 'check password script', with the cracklib code in

(By using a script, simo allowed the silly exit(1) behaviour of cracklib
to continue, without killing smbd).

Hmm, we should make this a little easier to find - I was looking under
'password quality script' originally...
