Thanks for doing this, this will be very useful in a number of
However, I've also been thinking about this, and I think there may be
something more to it, as the Heimdal PAC parsing and verification has
been around since well before 1.0. The trouble is that it is done
'under the hood' and so it is hard to prove that it is done at compile
time. The check I added (gsskrb5_extract_authz_data_from_sec_context)
to 'detect' it might be subtly wrong somehow.
