I know there is a sorcery call to rebuild all the pam-related
applications when there is a change related to pam. How difficult would
it be to abstract that to handle arbitrary spells/dependencies, and add
a new function to rebuild down the dependency tree? It seems to me like
this would be the logical way to proceed for handling cases like these,
but I defer to Jaka who is far more knowledgeable and experienced than I
:-D
