Perhaps, I don't know. 

What I don't like about it is that it uses a global variable to hold
the list of memory caches. This could be fixed by either including the
address of the cache in the cache-name (this only works for
krb5_cc_gen_new), or put the list in the context (only works if you
share the context). I don't known which is best.
