I think that perhaps part of the reason people have been reluctant to
fully integrate ssh with Kerberos 5 is that there is no _standard_ for
doing so (there are a couple competeing ones).

FWIW, most Kerberos sites that I'm aware of use Kerberized telnet, and
the one shipped with NetBSD works just fine.
