I haven't tried this, but it looks like there might
be a couple possibilities. First thing I'd try is
to try swapping the order the sia mechanisms are
defined in. To do this I'd try using the -P or -A
option to siacfg.
It may be that you can't get it to swap to using
your mechanism as the default for password change.
It's possible that it always defaults to the more
complete mechanism, which would be Enhanced
Security since you only supply a password change
mechanism and not session support and all the rest.
