2 wished-for Kerberos projects

There are two Kerberos-enabled services that other platforms support,
that I often wish NetBSD would too.  Is anyone looking at, working on,
or able to comment on the effort required for:  

   Secure-RPC NFS in krb5i and krb5p mode, for per-user strong
   authentication of NFS requests, with integrity and privacy

   SSH GSS-KEX mode, to replace the ssh known_hosts server
   authentication mechanism with kerberos server credentials, avoiding
   the distribution and key management issues of the former.

In both cases, my test case is interoperability with opensolaris (and,
to a lesser extent, linux) for consolidated user network credentials. 

Any takers or comments?
