In fact, there is no consensus about that among standalone OPIE 
applications, some acts with fake prompts, some - without.

One (among others) argument _for_ "no fake prompts" is that standalone
application once compiled with OPIE support can't dynamically turn off
fake prompts using some configuration. For PAM case it means that pam_opie 
can't be always turned on without confusion just because its fake prompts 
and _nothing_else_.

The arguments _against_ "no fake prompts" was explained by markm in our
previous discussion.
