Reading them all over instead of reading the diff turned up one more
clarification.  My apologies for not catching this the first time.

(Was the conclusion to use single quotes?  I should probably join
debian-l10n-english in my copious free time.)

Oh, and while we're reviewing this -- is this note debconf note abuse?  I
didn't remove it the last time I changed the templates, but I wasn't

    krb524d is a daemon that converts Kerberos V5 tickets into Kerberos V4
    tickets for the krb524init program and other programs that obtain
    Kerberos V4 tickets for compatibility with old applications.

I don't want to give the impression that krb524d is only used if you're
running krb524init, since the latter is not one of the more common ways of
getting Kerberos V4 tickets.  Most users actually use krb524d because of
old versions of aklog, although the version in Debian hasn't required this
for quite some time.  The Red Hat Kerberos PAM module is another likely

Also, I'm not sure what standard you've been following for this with other
templates, but I've always been taught it's conventional to keep Unix
program names in lowercase at the start of a sentence, since the case
difference implies a different program.
