While the password file/map is perused by many programs (eg ls) Getpw*(3)
returning a longer password string is probably not a problem as the
password structure contains char *pw_passwd, rather than a fixed string.
Getpass (in the BSD sources) allows a 128 char pass phrase, unfortunately
The export version of FreeBSD 2.x is bundled with a MD5-based password
scheme which allows for longer passwords to be used.
