Well that won't work, 3.0 changed substantially. Only the logic is really portable (unlang is pretty much unchanged).

That functionality was removed, because it was duplicative on the PAP module.

The PAP module will examine the header on control:Password-With-Header attributes, normalise them
and then copy them to the hash specific attribute. e.g. control:NT-Password.

In order to get similar functionality to 2.x.x you just need to list Password-With-Header in the
update section.
