This isn't sufficient, for two reasons:  It does not indicate how AES
keys are stored, and seems to have been written by someone who didn't
understand that this should be an extensible structure (lots of
references to there being values of either 0 or 2, when it should just
be 'number of kerberos keys stored').  

The linkage between the structures here also seems very unclear.  I
presume some are nested inside others, but we are instead presented with
a byte array that just happens to 'fit' the next layer in.
