Thanks Vinayak, looks interesting ! The only thing I'd recommend if you
haven't already done it is to run the whole KDC + DAL code under valgrind
( if you haven't already done so. If you haven't it'll
find bugs - lots of them (it does for Samba :-). Apologies if this is already
part of your test proceedure, it's just that previous krb5 MIT releases haven't
been valgrind-safe in the past and I wanted to make sure DAL would be :-).
