Thanks!  I took a brief look.  Can you take a look at:

and try to get this more in accordance with our C style?  The style
checker script should help.

This shouldn't be a problem.  We already have krb5kdc -w which forks off
multiple KDC processes.

We don't need a project proposal for something this simple.  We will
need documentation of the new option in

Ordinarily we would require automated tests for a new feature, but I'm
not sure if we can test this without making assumptions about the
builder's network configuration.
