Sometimes you want to start a new PAG, and sometimes you want to add or
refresh credentials in your current PAG.

Actually, Heimdal kinit will start a new PAG when given an explicit
command to run; try
	kinit <your-principal> id
and compare the PAG you get with that of the parent process.

I also like it that Heimdal's pagsh (kpagsh, in Debian) will generate=20
a new KRB5CCNAME, so that a subsequent kinit will not clobber the Kerberos=
ccache of the parent process. OpenAFS's pagsh shouldn't (and doesn't) do=20
that since OpenAFS tries to be agnostic about where the tokens come from=20
(it doesn't have to be Kerberos 5).
