How to Force a Kerb 4 Request

It appears that with 1.3.x you can't force it to make a kerberos 4 auth  
request.  I've tried putting only info in the [v4 realms]-like sections  
and disabling the DNS lookup on OSX 10.3, but then a kinit just fails.

Is there any MIT equivalent to Heimdal kinit -4?

Yes, I know this is a *BAD* idea and you-all hate it.  I just have a  
test case I need to support.
