Would it be possible to "integrate" these with the source code 
distribution? Specifically, at each release of the source code, could the 
"recommended replacement" be shipped (as an additional tar.gz?) inside the 
krb5 source code distribution? Or at a minimum, perhaps a base-level README 
specifying the "recommended applications" for use with krb5?
