re: PAM

   I thought sockets weren't affected by read-only filesystem. Just out
   of curiousity, why should they be if the node is already there? There'd
   be no actual writing to the filesystem. Do fifo's not work either?

creating a socked or a named pipe is creating a file on the
file system.  you need to be able to write to it.  this is
simply enforcing the same semantics as elsewhere...
