The problem here is that if it's up to the user (ie, as a command line
option), then none of this useful delegation stuff ever happens, and we
end up giving hosts the right to make up arbitrary tickets, not just
accept forwarded ones. I actually agree with Microsoft here, and the
delegation should be controlled by the KDC.
