Probably not. How often do you need to use that?

What do you mean by "Kerberos is running"?

I am not sure how hard it is to tell them to go to the Finder, go to 
the Applications folder, double-click on Kerberos,  click on "Get 

Also, note that Apple has not published a mechanism for menu 
additions yet, so anything we did would be unlikely to continue 
working in the future. That's the main reason why we added the Dock 
feedback to the Kerberos application icon, but no menu addition.
