Pluggable Authentication (Pluggable AUTH)
As a Server Administrator, I want Pluggable Authentication, so that customers can login via LDAP PAM or any other method.
It would be really nice to have WHM utilise something like PAM (for flexibility) or some other native ability to use user databases outside /etc/shadow and /etc/passwd which are hardcoded in at the moment (PwCache.pm). A native RADIUS or LDAP client would suffice but using PAM would probably be smarter to allow flexibility and avoid reinventing the wheel.
