Yes.  This directive was accepted by the configuration grammar, but
never worked the way you thought it worked.  It only ever worked during
password authentication, not account module processing.  So, instead I
worked with Garming Sam to implement this (making it not even appear to
work, and documenting this fact) on Friday. 

I know it's not much help (as you wanted this to work), but if you could
test that it fails in a useful way in your configuration, that would be
most helpful.
