I wouldn't worry about that. I certainly don't mind changing the
license on socket_wrapper to be usable by Heimdal, and I don't think
Jelmer or Metze would mind either, although we should ask them (svn
annotate only shows Metze, Jelmer and myself, apart from 1 line that
Andrew did).

that should be fixable I think.

definately worth fixing

btw, I assume this is aimed at the standalone heimdal testing in the
build farm, not the use within Samba ?
