Yes, but the xfr.file will contain principals with realms appended,
but I want to copy principals into a different realm.

Of course, I can use sed/awk to change the realm suffixes:

kadmin -l dump -d | grep ^principal |\
        sed  's/OLD\.REALM/NEW.REALM/' >xfr.file

but are you sure the keys don't depend somehow on those suffixes
(maybe hashed realm suffixes, I dunno).
