i like this idea. here's my improvement: pair the normal
password/passphrase with voice data. just like in my current phone's
address box I can add voice to an entry, a moko user could add "voice"
to their login credentials. on those days when you have a sore throat or
you're in a noisy place, the text password could be tapped in. but
normally you would press a button, "speak the password, and enter"--LOTR
even more elegant: if the voice credentialing subsystem used PAM (a must
in my book) then the voice_auth PAM module would be a simple config in
pam.d, added as "sufficient" for auth.
