To be blunt, if you want better Kerberos support in TLS, the fix
is to expand the TLS WG charter to explore new directions in TLS
Kerberos support.  Given all the current efforts on 1.3, this is
not going to happen for quite some time.

There's nothing that can be done in just OpenSSL, and the right
immediate action is to drop support for the obsolete protocol.

[ FWIW, Nico concurs. ]
