Sorry, but without any good reason I CANT agree this.
Please tell me concrete bugs!
Withouth these I can only request, that please
dont criticize anything whereof do you dont know enough well.

I dont think, that if a pam_krb5 module support
krb4 or afs should be a bug.
I think this features should be implemented in a pam_krb5
modul, rather than in a separate module.

This feature is deprecated and only compiled if requested.
