The patch is secondary. openssh supports kerberos and thus heimdal
without any patches.

True, but it's really just a configure flag, and Jan uses it, which
weighs a lot.

Either way, I didnt really want to question that specific bug there,
but wanted to question moving heimdal to core - kerberos support libs
in our core repository sounds reasonable to me
