Adopted passwdqc

Tollef forced me to take over libpam-passwdqc after I had reported Debian bug #517967.

passwdqc is a toolset that can be used to enforce password strength policies at exactly the right place: there's a PAM module, and with the next version, you can also use a library and command-line tools — read on below. The toolset gives administrators flexibility in defining the minimum password length based on the number of character classes a user tries to use. It also includes libpam-cracklib functionality and prevents the use of trivial passwords.

Debhelper 7 is really nice. Thanks, Joey.
