Not going to happen.  If the discussion was about a week earlier it
might have been possible.  We've been very conservative about what we
put in patch releases.  The krb_cred fixes were not included because
of their value for NATs but because they created a Heimdal interop

I'm not sure what we would have done had the only reason for the cred patches been NAT support.

If there becomes a need for 1.2.6 I'll certainly bring up the issue.
