I just realized I jumped the gun on myself with my question
earlier.  /etc/shadow isn't accessible by anyone but root.  With that
said, how can I build a login page in PHP, running as the web server
daemon process, that can validate the user against the system's shadow
file?  I hate to have to duplicate the file with different permissions
just so that the process can read it when it needs to.
