We (CERN) do heavily use Krb4 auth & credential forwarding, coupled
with AFS token passing. Will be some time before we can get rid of it,
as it requires a complete (all platforms) transition to
OpenAFS+Kerberos5 (no server-side compatibility Krb5<->4 translator,
which would be fairly easy).

I guess most sites with AFS are in a similar situation.
