[Samba] Possible to use MIT Kerberos yet?

Hey all,

$Dayjob currently uses MIT Kerberos.  We also use Zimbra with Kerberos 
auth, but Zimbra's LDAP is only internal to itself.

I see various things on the wiki that say "We need MIT Kerberos support 
cleaned up for a 4.0 release"


And the "How to build a domain controller" doc, effectively says "it's not 
*required* to build an alternate KDC.  It says other LDAP implementations 
aren't supported.  It does NOT say other KDC's are not supported.

I see people asking on this list if it's possible, and being told, 
outright, no, in 2014:


And yet I see it being possible:


So, is this a thing that one can do in mainline Samba yet -- add it on to 
an existing, already-provisioned Kerberos realm?
