Apparently Fedora is launching a project to consolidate all crypto in the
distribution and use NSS for everything, replacing OpenSSL and all other
crypto libraries.  See:


MIT Kerberos is in their list of target applications to modify to use NSS,
and they call out libdes425 (but not libk5crypto for some reason).

I thought people here might want to be aware of this.  I don't know any
more details than what's on that page.
