I understand that, only some daemons aren't that easy to set up in jails
like apache, samba and pop/imap daemons. (logical, they need to access
users home dirs)
The most troubling is samba wich runs as root.

But how about the auth system, does pam add an extra security level or
will it only add an extra "burden" for the admin?
