I haven't double checked what is supplied with krb5-appl, compared with the Heimdal packages.

My understanding though is there is no objection to dropping things like telnet, telnetd, popd, kx, kxd, etc.

In fact the only opposition I see here is some people object to dropping kerberos rsh/rlogin clients/servers for legacy and/or performance reasons.

Have I got this correct?

Apologies if I misrepresented your views.
