[arch-dev-public] The future of heimdal and nfs-utils

Hi guys,
The reason for not updating nfs-utils in [core] is the fact that,
nfs-utils and heimdal patches don't work together anymore.
I don't use this feature at all. 
Other distributions don't use heimdal as kerberos implementation, 
so no luck to find any help there.
I asked diego from gentoo who did some work on gentoo and nfs stuff, 
but he is busy since ages, but agrees that the whole thing is in a real bad 

What to do? 
Shall we drop the heimdal implementation on nfs? 
Go away from heimdal and use an other kerberos implementation?
As I said before I don't use this features at all.

Thanks for your help.
