Daemon versions of kinit for Kerberos v5

k5start are modified version of kinit that can use srvtabs or keytabs to authenticate, can run as daemons and wake up periodically to refresh a ticket, and can run single commands with their own authentication credentials and refresh those credentials until the command exits.

krenew is identical to k5start except that, rather than initializing a ticket cache from a password or keytab, it renews an existing renewable ticket cache. It can be used to periodically renew tickets and optionally AFS tokens for long-running processes in cases where using a keytab is inappropriate (such as users running their own jobs with their own credentials).
