In both Luke's code and in Heimdal, PARSE_NO_REALM causes an error to
occur if the principal string contains a realm.  Thus:

#define KRB5_PRINCIPAL_PARSE_NO_REALM      1 /* Error if realm is present */
#define KRB5_PRINCIPAL_PARSE_REQUIRE_REALM 2 /* Error if realm is not present */
#define KRB5_PRINCIPAL_PARSE_ENTERPRISE    4 /* Create single-component enterprise principle */
