  Unfortunately, the PAM API does not provide a way for the PAM module to set UID / GID / etc.  And the PAM documentation is horrifically opaque.

  That being said, the "template_user" functionality seems relatively simple:


  That might work, but I don't have time to test it right now.  If you could try porting that code to the pam_auth_radius module, that would help.  If it works, we can add that feature in.
