I see. My question is - if we go this way, what is then the reasonable subset
configuration functionality realistic for FreeIPA 4.2 GA? (As we want this
feature in for 4.2). Is ipa-kdcproxy-manage doable?

What is the proposed API here?

ipa-kdcproxy-manage list
ipa-kdcproxy-manage enable <server>
ipa-kdcproxy-manage disable <server>
