why not using /etc/security/group.conf instead?

with something like


enable module in pam.d/<whatever> and creating group fb for

it adds current console user to groups listed above and
remote users (for example) won't be able to read /dev/fb*

IMHO it's a cleaner way to use devices with particular permission, and
might be applied by default in pam (I don't know if the syntax of
