Whenever the question "Is there some utility to do some 
small afs/kerberos function", your first response should
be "I bet Russ has already written it":


Maybe not exactly what you want, but close. Otherwise,
a small script which creates a distinct pag and kerberos
credentials cache, prompts for those credentials, and
then executes the command supplied should do at least
the first half. The second optional half, keeping those
credentials around for five minutes, is more difficult.
