Be aware that doing this will cause your browser to promiscuously send
your credentials to every server in that domain with a valid HTTP/*
principal in your KDC and allow that server to impersonate you to any
other service.  This may be what you want to do, but it's worth thinking
carefully about the implications before you do it.

For example, if you're an educational site that allows students to obtain
HTTP/* principals for their own systems, you *don't* want to do this.
