Evening Marc,

Have a heart.  It's early over here - early enough for a couple of 
unsubstantiated comments.  You're right, of course.  I didn't mean to 
imply by the braces that (wide) applied to (Kerberos).  I should have 
been more specific.  Maybe you could tell me how widely its used :-).  

It's just the cumulative impression I got from a newsgroup, the fact that its 
MIT software, it's been around a while, the number of platforms its available 
for, the fact that OSF DCE is based on it, its use by DEC and Transarc (who ??) 

However if there is no solution out there (not necessarily Kerberos), then 

It's just I would not like to see the wheel reinvented `cos the first one 
was the wrong color.
