 From what I've seen you can put passwords into LDAP, and access LDAP 
over SSL. Therefore why bother with kerberos?

Is there anything which allows you to specify policies? E.g. user X can 
only login to x,y and z between 19:00 and 20:00 daily, via ssh. user X 
can also access pop3 on host_abc etc etc etc.
