Forgive if this is naively worded or repetitive:

What's the status of AFS support for the linux kernel keyring? 
Specifically, is it possible for me to write an application that, in 
a single process, accepts kerberos credentials from multiple users 
via network connections and then uses the credentials to allow each 
user access to AFS (or other file systems: NFS4, lustre?) file on a 
thread-by-thread basis respecting ACLs etc?  Is there an example of 
such a thing around?  How does filedrawers do this? multiple apache
