  We already do "real-time" change propagation,
  but in a way that is specific to our needs,
  so we're not interested (and I doubt anyone is
  interested in what we do).

  I guess I'm a little surprised that nobody was
  interested enough in "ka5server" to make it
  happen -- do most sites not use kaserver?
