My view is the opposite, we need to be making single sign on more
pervasive and more "just working"; it's an essential part of easy-to-use

_All_ apps that do authentication should work with Kerberos, out of the
box. Mail clients, IMAP server, LDAP server, printing, Nautilus doing
file transfer, thin client setup, X remote display, everything.

Or if not Kerberos then some other equivalent technology, but Kerberos
seems like the obvious choice. Pick one thing and make it work well and
work everywhere.
