Subject: Re: <shadow.h> function: fgetspent_r

Hi all,

so, I wrote a version of fgetspent_r() now. I based it on fgetspent().
For style, I adopted the Linux style -- might need to refactor that.
Returning EILSEQ on format error is a hack, but I found no better code.
As I said, glibc loops on error, but we do that for no other src/passwd
function, so we should either not start now or add that feature to every
other function.

One thing I noticed: If AccountService requires this interfaces, is it
possible that it doesn't support TCB shadow files?
