The formats of the pki-allowed-principals records is:
which means that client authenticating with X.500 distinguished name
"X500_NAME" is allowed to get TGT with client principal "PRINCIPAL". For
pki-allowed-principals = {
                   kouril = /O=CESNET/O=Masaryk University/CN=Daniel Kouril

I have prepared a port to Heimdal 0.5, which contains many improvements done
mostly by Mario Strasser (client compatibility with Win2k, support of
smartcards etc.) I hope to releae it soon.
