Oh yes the internal documentation on the Kerberos code base is virtually 
nil.  The same applies to unit test cases.  Any such contributions would 
be greatly appreciated.  Also this is a good way to get up to speed with 
the code base, and a good way to become a mentored committer.

As stated before, this area, the Kerberos code, is in desperate need of 
new committers.  You are very welcome Richard!
