Ehm, is this really necessary? Is this a concession towards all users
that are behind NAT? But in this case, would it not be good enough to
have something in between (say called "auto") which uses the
no-address strategy only when the client is a RFC1597 adrdess and the
other part is not? (No, I don't feel the urge to make "auto" work for
folks that use NAT between different RFC1597 nets).

One could change all the krb5_appdefault_*() functions that they do
not take a default value, but read a global table containing option,
default, max and min value and maybe help string for the option in
question. Then a small app can be linked against the same table and
print the table in man page format.
