Right, but I'm not sure that that would be enough to mollify PSARC.  I
guess they might be OK if Will sets up defaults and documentation such
that users don't end up including secrets in krb5.conf or kdc.conf
unless they really mean to, but...  then there's MIT's docs as well.

I'd like you to buy into the principle in question, rather than see
this as something that a weirdo distro/vendor wants.  I personally
agree with that principle -- I'm not carrying PSARC's water.
