Well, I always thought shadow is bloated, but rewriting the whole thing? 
If we stick to GNU/Linux and forget about everything else, just 
concentrate on what HLFS/BLFS needs... yes, sounds doable.

And as I look on the installed executables of shadow; what are those 
like newgrp and others having letter 'g' in them for? I've never even 
heard of them being used...
