Jeff is right about all those points.
I can testify that OpenAFS 1.3.83/84 (I'm not using those any more)  
and the test version from  20050518 are working with the constraints  
described by Jeff.

The salvager is not very reliable but I'm not complaining about that  
since it really is an experimental version and I'm using it as 'an  
experiment' :-)
