It's submitted.  Please make a new release whenever you are ready.

The new feature is a 'localifdown' option.  Previously, you would need
to be using Linux-PAM and the extended pam.conf syntax to ignore
PAM_AUTHINFO_UNAVAIL return values.  Now, with 'localifdown', the module
returns PAM_IGNORE instead of PAM_AUTHINFO_UNAVAIL, which works for
all pam stacks.
