I guess I was thinking of what I would call the next logical steps:
- Samba has found it useful to be able to delete a specific service ticket
from a credential cache when communicating with a Windows DC, to the
point where the functionality was added to a number of credential
- People who are using MIT Kerberos directly with a Windows DC also might
find it useful to delete a specific service ticket from a credential cache,
for the same reasons that Samba finds it useful.
If my logic is wrong or not compelling enough, fair enough.
