I should clarify.  I think that the only thing that reads stash files
should be the tool that migrates them to keytab file entries.  That
could be built-in to krb5kdc and kadmind, or it could be a standalone
tool.  Either way the stash file should be read once, migrated, and
removed or ignored thereafter.
