Would be nice to have support for authenticating against PAM. This would be a modified version of 'registered'.

Hmm, doesn't this mean BitlBee would have to run as root?

I guess it depend on the pam backend you use. For exemple, pam_ldap module do not require root privilege.

Most PAM auth. backends do require root, but it would only mean BitlBee'd run as root for as long as nobody's logged in.

It'd also be neat if that could store the account XML in the user's home directory instead. It'd fit pretty well with those local BitlBee setups out there.

If jelmer isn't going to do this, i'm sure nobody is going to do this.
