I was trying to update a Appleshare UAM and at the same time move from 
KClient, but it seems I won't have to do that since the functions I'm 
using are suppose to throw up GUI only when appropriate.  I'm aware of 
the security issues surrounding krbV4.  I would love to move to V5 but 
our servers only support V4 tickets at the moment.
