MEMORY keytabs - how should they be destroyed?

I am implementing the MEMORY keytab and have come across a problem.
There is no krb5_kt_destroy() function.  This means that there is
no mechanism by which a keytab can be destroyed once it is created.
The krb5_kt_close() function could be interpreted in such a way that
it destroys the keytab upon closure but that seems to be wrong to me.

Should a new operation be added?
