Turning off hostname canonicalisation

Take a look at the kafs man page in Heimdal 0.7.

Of course they use the library name as the application name in  
krb5.conf.  I think that makes it pretty clear that a lot of the issues  
have nothing to do with [{app,lib}defaults], but rather with  
identifying varying defaults.

The two variables that may need to change defaults are realm, and  
library version (which includes whether it's MIT or Heimdal).  The  
latter should map to application name, if you have a good way to  
identify the application name.
