I haven't said as much, but Stanford University is certainly in the same
position.  If they'll no longer be part of the MIT distribution, we'll
have to maintain them internally ourselves.  We've already been feeding
patches back to MIT for the changes we've needed (although I don't know
how many of them have been taken).

But we do fall under the category of a large educational institution that
can bundle additional packages with MIT Kerberos alluded to in a previous
message, so I've not been saying much about that.
