So I guess that heimdal and MIT kerberos KDCs can work together pretty
easily then (as master/slave KDCs?)? I'm guessing you guys at Stanford
don't have a separate KDC database for the OpenLDAP servers... or am I
wrong on that?

Also good to know (though I don't really understand threads well enough to
know what a mutex is---I get the gist anyway: performance problems).

I wouldn't even need to since SuSE 9 comes packaged with heimdal. I opted
to build MIT kerby 5 from source because I thought it would be more well
tested for vulnerabilities and so forth.

Ok. Thank you.

Again, thanks for the pointer.
