    Yes... The `kaserver` thingy...  :)

    The problem is that when I've started using OpenAFS (for personal
purposes), the "stable" version was 1.4 (or at least what was labeled
"stable" in my distribution).  And at that time `kaserver` was simple
to install and manage, and I still use it today, mainly due to
laziness.  Moreover I only have a few users, thus migrating to a full
Kerberos stack seems like an overkill to me...

    On the same topic, are there any serious concerns related to
`kaserver`?  Or is it more related with other aspects (like say
scalability, integration, future, etc.)?
