But isn't the whole point of pam and nss that applications only need to
support them, and pam/nss handle all the details thereof?
Anyway, i'm definitely interested in getting kerberos support improved
in ubuntu. One of the things that i'd like to see improved is
install-time support for master vs slave KDCs (see a rant at
http://www.linux.ie/lists/pipermail/ilug/2005-March/024034.html , it's
about debian, but i think it also applies to ubuntu as well).
