We do not wish to commit to a public ABI for this interface or for any
ASN.1 decoders.
Why does SAMBA need this?

    b> error_message()
This is public in -lcom_err

    b> krb5_set_default_tgs_ktypes()
Use krb5_set_default_tgs_enctypes

    b> initialize_krb5_error_table()
Don't call this; it has not been needed in years.

    b> krb5_locate_kdc()

We do not wish to commit to a stable ABI for this functionality.
It has changed in every major release of Kerberos.
What functionality does SAMBA need from this interface?
