Ehh. As maintainer of a PAM-using application you usually have no
control which PAM modules are used. You just ship the application with
a /etc/pam.d/foo using

@include common-<whatever>

and the *end-user* can (and probably will, if he installs stuff like
libpam-mysql) change these defaults to use modules of his choice.
