       I have asked this before in -questions but due to a odd security
       requirement, I need the option to auto lock a normal user's account
       (root and those in the wheel group must be excluded) after let say, 3,
       login failures. I know this can cause a DoS issue but I HAVE to have
       the option of doing it in FreeBSD.
       Any info is appreciated
