Description:
See bug https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=347144: user
requests a way for configuring pam_mount.
We already have feature 300967 for some part, maybe other parts of it
could be used in samba-client module.
Michael, please check which parts might have sense

Relations:
- inlcude pam_mount in an up-to-date version and provide a YaST
interface for it (novell/bugzilla/id: 347144)

Hmm, maybe we should think about a general solution. We use currently
pam_mount for encrypted home directiories. Mounting samba shares is
requested and now we have a general request to configure pam_mount.
The pam_mount configuration is more or less the same like /etc/fstab.
It provides all filesystem types which are supported via fstab and some
more with special handling from pam_mount directly.
The main difference is, that it is possible to have general rules which
applies for all users logging-in, groups of users (supporting uid
ranges, by guid or guid ranges or group names) and rules which applies
only for a single user.
For single user configuration a plugin for the users module would be
good, but for more general rules a special module would be the best
way. Such a module should have an API which can be used by other
modules like samba-client to push in special rules needed fo this kind
of configuration.
