PAM allows you to change authentication methods without re-compiling
applications all over the system. Once applications have been made
"pam-aware", changing authentication schemes can be done by simply
editing /etc/pam.conf. So if you decide that shadow passwords aren't
good enough and you want to change to kerberos or something, you just
change the config file.
