While it is certainly true that the rxkad aklog could be implemented
using the LSA credential cache functions to request a krb5 service
ticket for afs, the SSPI cannot be used to obtain rxgk security tokens
because it lacks an implementation of the GSS PRF.

There will be a need for a non-Microsoft Kerberos/GSS implementation for
use with AFS implementation for quite some time to come.
