yes: paul leach told me that they copied the concept of putting
user-profiles [User Credentials] into the kerberos application-specific

hm, let's see.  in the dce 1.22 source, the *.c code is 7.25 million
lines. the *.h code is 1.3 million lines.  the idl files is 170 thousand.

in the dce 1.1 runtime lib/env, the total number of lines is only about a
quarter million.

oh, _now_ i see the two smileys - you _were_ joking, after all.
