I've started implementing RC4-HMAC but haven't gotten anything that
interoperates with w2k yet.  And if Microsoft and/or Cybersafe starts
using 3DES without key-derivation we'll add it in Heimdal to be able
to interoperate with them, but I would prefer that everybody plays the
same 3DES game.

This is getting off-topic for the CAT list, so please move it over to
the Heimdal mailing list for further implementation-discussions.
