It's been done back in 1997, actually. Linux-PAM comes with a
pam_access module that is a pamified version of that login_access()
function. FreeBSD (-stable) comes with Linux-PAM 0.66, apparently
from 1998. Recent versions (0.72) come with several modules
not included in FreeBSD (-stable), including pam_access.
