        Everything in the tree uses the API apart from adduser.perl. Do
many ports use /etc/shells ?

        On the security issue, I rather like the idea that a none root
port administrator is possible, this doesn't really need multiple shells
files though so nsswitch works for me. I can't set it up though (no
-current box).
