MIT krb5 isn't my project, so take this as just an outsider's random

One small thing to consider is that each new binary will need to be
packaged (or not packaged, most packaging systems watch out for
unexpected new files), and if packages Debian will require a manpage.

I guess I'm just saying that while not high-cost, it also isn't free.
