This message starts a two week review of a project to add RFC 3244
server support to MIT Kerberos

   The RFC 3244 project adds support for the Microsoft set password protocol server to MIT
      Kerberos. In addition, it adds support for both that protocol and the traditional
         kpasswd protocol over TCP. This protocol is added for better compatibility with
            Microsoft Windows.

               No new public APIs are exposed; MIT Kerberos already contains an API for the client side
                  of this protocol.

                     The only non-obvious change introduced by the implementation is kadmin/server/network.c
                        modeled on src/kdc/network.c (current|log). The existing kadmin server does not support
                           TCP; it needs an event loop similar to the KDC in order to support TCP.
