I thought that the telnet standard only supported DES and tripple DES, of
which heimdal only support the DES case. Jeffery Altman might know more
about that.

One problem is that Heimdal is not that good at returning sensable
enctypes, in both AS-REQ and TGS-REQ. Does Windows Kerberos server doesn't
support arcfour enctype for the ticket, with single-des for the session

Want I want to see it more people stop using telnet and moving over to
ssh/gssapi (both userauth and kex-exchange).
