Bug#402804: openssh-client: Needs to conflict with old ssh-krb5; conffile ownership transfer failure

One suggestion that someone on debian-devel had about the problem is that
maybe the Replaces shouldn't be versioned.  If ssh-krb5 is upgraded to a
dummy package first, maybe apt then gets confused and doesn't realize that
it's supposed to transfer ownership of the file.

sshd_config isn't a conffile.

The KerberosTgtPassing option sounds like something left over from an
early protocol version one hack and should just be removed.

I've never heard of GSSAPIUseSessionCredCache.  What is it supposed to do?
Was it supported by ssh-krb5?  Maybe it needs to be commented out like the
now-obsolete MIC option.
