(Tom, this is the other one you were referring to, I hope.)

I'm still planning to do this, but I'm very pressed for time right now.
I'll try to get it done as soon as possible, but worst case it may be
around two weeks before I can do it. Sorry. If someone else wants to
beat me to it go right ahead, otherwise - it's on it's way eventually.
I think a general overview to make sure the different parts (config
section vs kerberos auth section) are actually in sync is required.
