currently, no.  but having a "nologin" flag or something (i'm relating
it to /etc/nologin) or "disabled" flag or something should be
doable...that way you'd get what you want...a successful login, the
motd, and then an exit.  i'll add this to my todo list (the "i'd like
this in before the next release" one).
