Juste answering to your mail so that' it's CC'ed to the shadow
development list. 

I agree that having something different from other distros is,
nowadays, probably not the best thing. If we look how loosely shadow
was maintained during several years (no offense intended to those
involved, of course, which includes myself), I'm sure there's
something better to do.
