Won't affect Coda. It looks like the AFS folks are simply sticking their
tokens in something that looks a lot like a kerberos IV ticket. This way
if you log into another machine and your kerberos tickets are
transparently forwarded your AFS authentication 'piggybacks' along and
klist shows not only the kerberos tickets, but also the AFS tokens.

The proposed changes seems to be related to krb524, obtaining kerberos
IV tickets based on your kerberos 5 tickets, so that the krb5 AFS
ticket? is automatically converted into the krbIV equivalent AFS token.
