Could you please elaborate?
_ why this is done/what problems should it solve?
_ what problems can arise and what is the suggested upgrade procedure 
(or the procedure to still go the old way, if possible)?
_  what will happen to base OpenSSL and Kerberros;
_ is this expected to be done and work on all versions (still thinking 
about 9.3);
_ etc...

Thanks a lot
