Hi Luca,

thanks for taking a look at python-pam(py).

As already mentioned in the ITP message[1], Python PAM (the one in  
python-pampy) simply contains one single file: pam.py. That's where I  
got the idea from for renaming the package to avoid a duplicate  
package name in the Debian archive. (Actually this got a little  
inspired by python-web, that has a home page under webpy.org).

As there was no feedback from anyone (AFAICT) I interpreted this as  
silent agreement.

Any recommendation / superseding naming preference is welcome and, if  
so, a package under a new name will be prepared.
