:) Yes you are right.  This could have been a good answer for PAM.

But my initial question was more premitive.  I was wondering how Debian
uses /etc/group entry accessed by pam_unix.so.


What are the assigend meaning of "operator" for example?

I found that Javier got it from Joey Hess's mailing list thread.  So I
guess there were no written rules before for this.

Thanks I learned 1 thing. :)
