When I first read your mail I thought 'why would you want to do that'.
However, I seem to be in exactly the same situation.  I would like to
keep the keytab in a database (Samba4 ldb in this case), as it provides
a consistency with the rest of the records.

I might just bail and have a 'keytab reference' in the database, but
exactly this kind of functionality would be very useful.  I might even
try and hack it up in lorikeet-heimdal (the branch of Heimdal I maintain
for Samba4).
