I've just committed code to allow login to get both krb4 and krb5
tickets, when told to do so in krb5.conf.  The way you enable it is:
	login = {
			krb5_get_tickets = true
			krb4_get_tickets = true

Sorry for not getting to it sooner...  It seems it's taking me
longer and longer to recover from my real job, these days.

I also apologize for the wording of the phrase, "someone's old
attempt at integrating kerberos5, apparently without using MIT
code".  I'm glad the work had been done, and glad that it had been
done in the fashion that it has.  It's made my job a lot easier,
and I don't really know what I was thinking by implying that parts
of MIT's login implementation should have been used instead, since
it's not a particularly good fit to our needs.
