Sounds good. I'm not sure how much coding I'll be able to do before and
at Seoul, but I'll tackle this when I get back, definately.
However, I've realized something else in the meantime. If we were to
switch the password change protocol over to using something like
krb5int_sendto (or whatever), that means there may be a possibility of
a replayed change password message being sent to the server as part of
the retransmission if a reply packet is dropped. We might need to
implement a lookaside cache similar to what the KDC can optionally use.
