I, too, would very much like to see -ldes go away, especially if its
functionality can be replaced be an already widely used alternative
(OpenSSL).  On my system other packages already use OpenSSL libraries:
including: apache, postfix (SSL versions), stunnel, and ssh.

I can only think of one potential problem: this will probably break
any existing application that is compiled based on Heimdal.  However,
I think all programs should now be changed to use krb5-config, so this
will no longer be a problem. (I assume MIT Kerberos has a krb5-config
that is compatible with the version in Heimdal?).
