Both of these simply take the credentials passed during LDAP 
authentication, and send them off to the KDC for verification.

PADL's ( plugin, I believe, will do "true" kerberos 
authN, where a user with a pre-auth'd ticket can use those credentials 
to access information in the LDAP directory, without re-authN'ing.

I know Luke from PADL lurks in this Newsgroup, so I am sure he will have 
some more to contribute.

I can't figure out if this means that it's possible if you provide the plugin yourself (with something like commercial PADL software), or if it's now available through integration with Sun's implementation of kerberos SEAM.
