Is this program run by the module, or directly from
the command line? If not command line, it would be nice to put it
in the /lib/security dir. What do you think?

Great. Could you also mention *how* some packages such as HAL and
GVM can use it? A brief mention that "users at the console blah,
blah, blah; see the HAL/GVM (whatever is applicable) instructions
for further information about using pam_console". Note the paren
stuff isn't included, just a note to you.

Again, what do you think?
