I tend to update PAM right after installation, and then only need to
update shadow and /etc/securettys (if I ask linux-pam to install a
default one) to allow root login on a console. Not sure if I've
converted a system to PAM after it's been up and running.
$ grep -Ri "depends.*pam" /var/lib/sorcery/codex|grep -v HISTORY|grep
