Re: add --rand xxxxxxxx

That option sets a random key, which doesn't have a corresponding  
password, or not one you can easily figure out anyway.  You could use  
--random-password instead, which will print out the password chosen.   
I wish it invented longer passwords, so I don't use it myself.

It's also possible to exchange the des-cbc-md5 and arcfour-hmac-md5  
keys between AD and Heimdal, but don't ask me how.  XAD did that.   
Possibly Samba4 as well.
