In different distributions there are different versions of vlock. This
happened because for long time vlock project was abandoned. ALTLinux
and Fedora had same version of vlock. Some time ago, i merged
altlinux's version. Later i merged patches from Fedora. This version
is not a replacement for vlock-2... at least for now.
Archlinux maintainer was wrong if he replaced vlock-2 by kbd-vlock.
