suggestion: move krb5 daemons to krb5-daemons subpackage



Someone's situation on the main fedora list (they were accidentally getting
kerberized ftp instead of vsftpd as they expected) reminded me of this:

<https://bugzilla.redhat.com/beta/show_bug.cgi?id=81836>

Currently, there are several daemon programs in the krb5-workstation
subpackage which one wouldn't necessarily expect or want on a workstation.
(Obviously, telnetd, ftpd, kshd, klogind, etc. And probably login.krb5 too,
since we've got PAM.). In this day and age, perhaps dropping them completely
(in favor of fully-encrypted protocols like ssh) is the way to go, but
failing that, my suggestion is to move them to a more clearly-named
subpackage. (And to one that doesn't contain important utilities like
kdestroy, etc.)
