finalize Athena Login library
Submitted by: Bruce Lewis
Using the Athena login library in login, xlogin, ftpd, rlogind and telnetd
would greatly reduce duplicated code in those programs, and would facilitate
work on new platforms (ala SGI), as well as provide a single place
to extend Athena login functionality.
It would mean examining/modifying the API, then extending
functionality to include ref. counts, then modifying xlogin,
etc. to use the library, then testing.
People wouldn't be able to remove themselves from the passwd
file while still logged in on dialup.
Fewer people bitten by the passwd file bug.
