The upstream version was used as far as I know to integrate with the
kerberos realms of ANDREW.CMU.EDU and CS.CMU.EDU. But I have never seen
them in use that way, so I can't even tell you if it was using
kerberos4, kerberos5 or a mix of the two.

Either way if the upstream hooks are insufficient for actual deployment,
I guess they should be removed so that nobody has to bother trying to set
up something that won't work anyway. Or is your code dependent on these
insufficient hooks?
