Speaking as the author of several PAM modules, Debian's PAM configuration
system is also vastly superior to that of Arch, Fedora, and SuSE, which
require that I as upstream provide complicated and tedious installation
documentation for how people can configure my modules.  It's a stark
contrast with Debian, where I can just ship a configuration file and have
everything happen automatically and correctly despite requiring some quite
complex PAM syntax.
