The printable documentation on our API is sadly out of date.  (Want to
help us update it?)

The functions listed in krb5.h and not marked there as private or
deprecated should be considered available for use.  You might want to
stay away from the KRB5_OLD_CRYPTO functions too; I don't recall
offhand whether we were intended to phase those out or not, but I
think that was the intent years ago when the newer crypto interfaces
were added.
