This is because I hadn't ported a patch from the ubuntu branch which got
applied some six months ago.. d'oh. The issue is that our pykerberos is
newer, and needs this:

diff --git a/ipalib/ b/ipalib/
index 81e7aa3..ce5f2a0 100644

now client install on the server almost works, but only almost because..

..this is still something I haven't figured out. Dirsrv restart after
LDAP updates fail, so client install on the server will fail because it
can't get SASL up. Something for tomorrow then.. still got until Sunday
to get this fixed and uploaded and then accepted to unstable by ftpmasters,
or it won't migrate to Jessie in time for the freeze. But that's an
eternity! :)

Oh and the web UI is blank when I try it. Does the client install fail have
something to do with it?
