I think that we have Sandia's patch sitting in our bug database.
If we don't I definitely have it in my email.

I think that MIT Kerberos would be improved by taking the kadmin and kdc parts of that patch (or the similar Redhat patch).

Long term I think that adding OK-AS-Delegate support to libkrb5 and
(although it is harder) gssapi would be a good idea.
I believe the discussion you point to describes all the issues.
