From reading through the bug report, Ossi seems to be saying he'd consider the 
patch if the integration was done in a similar manner to how the PAM 
integration is done.  His comment at the end was "if you are touching 
session.c, you are doing something wrong".

A quick grep shows that every call to a pam function is done in client.c.  So 
I guess that's where he wants all the ck_* functions that the patch places in 
session.c to reside.
