There are a couple of issues, IIRC.. In particular, I'm pretty sure
the domestic 'passwd' program doesn't work with krb5's kadmind4.. This
is a fairly easy fix, but I'm not too worried about getting to it since
krb5 integration shouldn't take that much more work.

I was planning on enabling krb5 rsh/rlogin, and also GSSerizing our
ftp client/server. Is this a bad idea?

Yes, I'm working on integrating krb5.. This has gone slowly (even
_really_ slowly) for a number of different reasons, not least of which
is that changing NetBSD still makes me pretty nervous. I plan to post
a proposal here when I'm ready to start integrating.
