passwd restrictions/options

I previously groused:

I've now discovered /etc/passwd.conf (through the circuitous route of
first locating the npasswd source code, then finding that npasswd 
supports a config file, and then discovering that the config file has 
been relocated to /etc and renamed).  I've changed some of the options 
in the file to values more in line with my particular (lenient but not 
nonexistant) password security requirements, and I withdraw my grumble.

It's lookin' better and better. B^)
