can someone please comment on the MIT vs Heimdal question? i hear
Heimdal is able to distribute principals and keys over ldap.

We have a network with differnt services (imap, samba, soon AFS,
ldap, terminal servers, ...) which would need own kerberos keys

Using Heimdal and ldap would solve our distribution problem.
But people tell me that this idea is against the spirit of
kerberos. (An alternative idea for MIT Kerberos would be ssh keys
without passphrases for every server and automatic distribution
over ssh.)

could someone comment, and tell me how they solved this problem?
