there are a few other things to take care of, like some files are build 
only when selecting MIT Kerberos, and some other only when building with 
Heimdal Kerberos. There are also a few packages that are not yet 
provided as python3-xxx naming scheme but only with the former EPEL 
python36-xxx naming scheme. Using transition package could do it. And a 
few build flags too. But I think it is definitly doable.

@Andreas @Gunter, if you think that a with_heimdal_kdc bcond would be 
acceptable to switch between MIT and heimdal in a upstream fedora 
package, I can see at adding the few %if %endif necessary.
