In fact, one of the reasons no serious work has been done on PKCROSS in 
some time is that it requires ticket extensions and the current Kerberos 
protocol does not have them.  At this point, I think it is somewhat likely 
that the form of ticket extensions we end up with will be significantly 
different from what was envisioned when PKCROSS was being worked on.
