I had the Solaris KMF (Key Management Framework) team review the pkinit
options in MIT Kerberos V 1.6.3-beta1 and for this one:


they noted that slotid= is not a good idea as there is no guaranteed
ordering of numbering of slots returned from C_GetSlotList().

That is, slot or token names are useful but numbers are not.

I see slotid= is optional but was wondering if it was useful for anybody?

(And likewise for certid=)
