your right about useless things, but making basic software to depend on these useless things is a very bad idea.
I'm sure, telnet & ssh are the most used applications on any UNIX system, so they must not depend on any third party software by default. If you need kerberized ssh or telnet, then ok -- relink them to use kerberos, but why possible bugs in kerberos should affect ssh & telnet when kerberos is not mandantory for their functioning ?
