I completely agree on this one.  However, I aim low for this spec at
first.  I think we should put in as little as possible to make it easy
to implement and yet still be useful.  How much work would integrating
Kerberos up-front represent ?  I do not know as I have never set up a
KDC myself, but this would have to be evaluated.

However, I certainly believe Kerberos authentication (and kerberization
of as many client applications as possible) would be a good thing.
