Not good given that MD2 is broken. Very broken, not just by a factor of  
2^5 or something.

Where upon rests the earlier assertion (not by Matthew) that Kerberos V  
needed MD2 checksums?
I can't seem to find that in the KRB5 protocol and checksum RFCs. If it's  
not mandatory we may want to nuke MD2 from Kerberos to remedy a  
weakness... Chapter and Verse welcome.
