It is one possible approach. The other possible approach is to have one
KDC instance serve multiple domains.

I attached a patch which you might find useful for both approaches:

- Every tool & daemon has a '-config-file' option for the location of
- Every tool & daemon can correctly parse and use multiple database
  definitions in kdc.conf
- You can specify the realm to use for hpropd
- Handling of 'ports' and 'addresses' parameters are unified for all the
  daemons; both parameters can be set either on the command line or in
- Server-side sections (such as [logging] and [password-quality]) have
  been moved from krb5.conf to kdc.conf

The patch is against 0.4e. It might be a bit dusty (I did it more than
half a year ago), but I hope it works.
