Will I face serious problems if I continue with the MIT kerberos based 
samba packages? I like my openSUSE but I don't like to use packages 
aside from the official ones. But honestly I'm somewhat surprised about 
the fact that openSUSE stays on MIT Kerberos and doesn't switch to 
Heimdal (at least for samba builds).
