Yes, go ahead and put them in a separate package, but please don't
remove them. (Not that I'd care, I have nice little Heimdal RPMS
anyway.) It is quite reasonable to run a kerberos telnetd och rshd on
every workstation.

I suppose login.krb5 could be dropped. ftpd is clearly named gssftp
("The kerberized FTP server") in system-config-services, but it comes
before vsftpd in the list. :-)
