Its only in current heimdal where we try to support AES, I've not run it in
production system (ie other then just me on my laptop) with MS nor Solaris,
but from it seems to work mostly just fine (from a client side)

The salt string will be aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96:pw-salt, and its included
in the "v5" salts.
