Maybe, but a trivial half-measure is better than a duplicate structure
living in there for even more time, no? I mean, it's been years, and
this fix is really tiny and I've tested it, and it would help clean
things up now. As a new person spelunking into the kerberos code, it
was kind of shocking to see, and this would help with that, even if it's
not the full "correct answer".
