it does require two keys, if you want to support both naming schemes.

adding that kind of thing for just the KDC spoofing check, without regard
for the naming issues in Kerberos in general (e.g. for service ticket
requests via mk_req(), etc.) is a gross hack. if you don't believe me,
feel free to submit the idea to comp.protocols.kerberos and the KTH krb4
mailing list (krb4_(_at_)_sics_(_dot_)_se) for a second opinion...
