I think it's time to encourage maintainers to start thinking about this,
as the next major release of MIT Kerberos is also going to drop Kerberos
v4 support as of May of 2006.  Kerberos 4 support will still be there in
the MIT package until at least that time, and there are some sites who are
still in the process of transitioning away, so I wouldn't want to see too
many things disappear too quickly, but it's certainly time to think about
how to drop it over time.
