	Am I misunderstanding, or was Andrew suggesting
	that PDC improvement should be put on hold while
	the team works on AD functionality?

	I'm of the opinion that a good, workmanlike 
	kerberos implementation able to work with AD
	is the most desirable single item for 3.0, and
	that there is a community of folks, like myself,
	that would like to jump from a security=user,
	unix-centric configuration straight to a security=kerberos
	unix-centric configuration (;-))
