The problem is that since crypto functions are involved, it would require
a good chunk of the MIT library (and the db library).

Actually, afs2k5db doesn't link against AFS at all. It uses AFS header
files, but you could get around that.
I agree with you that logically afs2k5db should probably live in
MIT Kerberos ... but good luck in fighting THAT windmill :-/ The
reason I suggested fixing afs2k5db up and putting it in OpenAFS was
that it didn't require Hell to freeze over to make it happen :-)
