Speaking of such things, are there any official plans to move
said nasty compiled-in table out of conv_princ.c and into the
config file?  I did it here a while ago:

        IASTATE.EDU = {
                v4_principal_convert = {
                        rcmd = host
                        ppt = ppt
                        dqs = dqs
                v5_principal_convert = {
                        host = rcmd
                        ppt = ppt
                        dqs = dqs


but, I'm not sure my patch is general enough
(esp w.r.t. DO_REALM_CONVERSION), and requiring
both directions is icky, but it made the patch
a lot simpler.

Or, are we just wishing V4 goes away... :)
