secureity wise i would also do this, had bots trying whole day here to 
get week passwords found to atleast find one login that works, if acl is 
used there is only one password found and the other user do not need to 
change his password, but only the acl or ask the other user to change 
his password, its still possible that both users is same user, imho it 
have no point if its pam users or not
