Er, well, not quite.

*I* certainly prefer libdefaults over appdefaults, but I don't mind
having both, with appdefaults being most specific.

What Sun did mind was removal of appdefaults for kinit, which we had to
add back in when we resync'ed to recent releases of MIT krb5.  We can
manage interface obsolescence and removal, but we have different rules
and schedules than MIT; we'd prefer to coordinate the such as it might
save us some effort.
