Yes, it is really just one boolean switch (service enabled/disabled).
The state of the switch is read when Apache is started or reloaded. In
the default state KDC Proxy is enabled. When the service is disabled,
the WSGI script replies with 404 instead. All remaining settings like
kdc, kadmin and kpasswd server(s) are read from /etc/krb5.conf.

I had both the per-replica and the global switch implemented. After I
discussion with Nathaniel and Martin, it's now a global switch only.
Nathaniel argued, that a global switch is easier to implement as well as
sufficient for now.

The state of the switch is controlled with ipa config-mod:

  ipa config-mod --enable-kdcproxy=TRUE
  ipa config-mod --enable-kdcproxy=FALSE

The schema changes for the new attribute are handled by
ipa-server-upgrade. The Apache config file is created
ipa-server-install, ipa-replica-install and ipa-server-upgrade.
