Not really. The GSS-API standard calls for name-based authorization. I
wrote patches to OpenSSH + Simon's patches that do just that: you get to
use Kerberos principal names and principal name glob patterns in
authorized_keys entries. I didn't remove the krb5_kuserok() call, but I
might as well have as in practice the auth_keys approach works much
better than .k5login (you get globs, you get OpenSSH auth_keys options).

So only the creds issues need to be resolved. I keep forgetting what the
ggf stuff looks like - I should go re-read it now.
