I would agree with you except PAM_IGNORE is not a permissible return code
for a PAM module according to the Linux PAM standard, which is as close to
a standard as we have.
Normally, you don't need to do the above. Other things don't work if the
user doesn't have a basic existence in the nsswitch setup for the system,
at which point pam_unix's account module will succeed.
