[Python-Dev] spwd and AIX

a) I am looking at getting spwd integrated from AIX

b) only the parameter sp_pwdp is my concern - as AIX really does not 
want to reveal the encrypted password. Rather, AIX will say '!' (meaning 
there is, or should be a shadow password, or '*' - no user password). 
Would this horribly break things if only '!' was returned, rather than 
the shadow password?

It does not look terribly hard - but how do you deal with defaults such 
as 0 or -1 for the numeric values?
