Frankly - it's a matter of exploration, learning and understanding of
everything all put together.

Secondly, it's because MIT offers a windows MIT KerberosV application and I
wanted to see them interact with each other.

Thirdly, src.conf(5) clearly states that the knob WITH_GSSAPI will
re-introduce that back into world.  And as a subnote, I don't know how to
use GSSAPI, don't know how to administer the API, or enable a service/daemon
to utilize GSSAPI.

Fourthly -- Loosing the pam_{krb5,ksu} is no sweat.  As the first, initial
play thing, I'd keep local accounts, enabling K5 and see how they interact.
Speaking of the interaction, it's the time to learn DNS SRV records, and K5
seems a useful go at it.

I may have forgotten a reason, but it's how my mind works, how I enjoy to
learn, and I'm not going to break the Internet doing it.  :)

LTNS, tmclaugh.  Haven't seen you around recently.
