renaming principals? Nicolas.Williams at
Thu Sep 12 12:15:54 EDT 2002

It would be cool if kadmin stored the otherwise implicit salts in the KDB record of each principal as they change/set their passwords, and it would be good if kdb_util would add the salts when loading. Then renaming principals wouldn't be hard to do with kdb5_util dump/edit/load.
