I don't think Russ's is derived from the one we use, which started its
life as a rewrite of the one that preceded it.  Based on its man page, I
doubt Sun's is related to either.

Preauth settings are settable in 2.2.19 and later.  Mapping from user
names to principal names is configurable using regular expressions.
