typically, you would use the key named rcmd_(_dot_)_hostname_(_at_)_realm_(_dot_)_

but if you wanted to also support the proposed scheme using the FQDN of
the host, you'd have to add a key for that instance - or replace the old
one, at the expense of compatibility with existing krb4 implementations,
as was noted.
