Just my two cents ...

If my choices are to use Russ's commands (k5start and krenew) or use some
combination of pagsh/MIT programs that may know about aklog .... well,
the choice is easy: I would use Russ's programs in a heartbeat.  It's
just easier (I have enough time getting the levels of quoting right
when using multiple levels of shell interpretation .... I can't imagine
what an unsophisticated user would do).

If the goal is to support AFS, then I think you should go whole-hog.  If
you're only going to support it half-assed ... well, what is the point,
exactly?  If there are other possible consumers of this functionality,
then of course this makes sense.
