MIT Kerberos always has some GSSAPI extensions to let you get access to
the various bits of the ticket (I added an extra function here to get
access to the ticket flags).  Seems like it would be easy for Heimdal to
do the same thing.

I think this is a bit of a red herring.  Certainly when you associate a
certificate with an account the administrator should know whether or
not it's a soft certificate versus a smart card.  In theory you could
set a bit in your KDC database that says, "Set the hardware preauth bit
when you use this certificate".
