1.4.1, yes.

I'm not sure.  My plan was to keep it a separate package initially,
although it may make sense down the road to just incorporate the binaries
from openafs-krb5 into openafs-client and have openafs-krb5 be a
transitional package for a release.

With the 1.4.1 release, my plan is to:

 * Eliminate openafs-krb5 as a separate source package in favor of just
   building a binary package with the same contents from the openafs

 * Build a libafssetpag shared library from the openafs source.

 * Redo libpam-openafs-session to call lsetpag from libafssetpag to create
   a PAG and then run aklog without the -setpag flag.  That should let
   people use it with afslog or the like if they want.
