I'm not sure this is relevant. If you use the kpasswd program, the  
kpasswd protocol is used. If you use ksetpwd, RFC 3244 is used.

My work was principally concerned with server-side support (in  
kadmind). The bulk of that work was in multiplexing TCP and RPC  
listeners, rather than the set password protocol itself.
