We have another implementation available locally at Stanford for Debian
users here and I can point Ben at that.  We're starting our project to
retire K4 at Stanford the beginning of next year, so please don't maintain
K4 support in Debian on our account.  We have a handful of local packages
that do the bits that are necessary for us and that we'll drop as soon as
we finish our migration.

Note that I don't speak for SLAC, but I think they're mostly using Red
