Turning off hostname canonicalisation

So I'd like to understand why folks are using [appdefaults].  Sun's  
need is fairly straightforward: "we had it before and can't de- 
support it".  But how are sites actually using this feature?


* What tags to you use in the [appdefaults] section?  What values are  
you setting them to?

* Do you need each application to receive different values for a  
given tag?  If so, why?

* Where does your code to read [appdefaults] live?  (In every  
application?  In the Kerberos libraries?)

* What APIs do you use to read [appdefaults]?
