not as secure as real Kerberos authentication. It generally should only
be used with NNTP over TLS to protect the password from sniffing.
+Normally, you do not want to use this authenticator. Instead, use
+ckpasswd with PAM support and configure the nnrpd PAM stack to use a
+Kerberos PAM module. A full Kerberos PAM module is more sophisticated
+about how it validates passwords and has a much broader array of options
+than this authenticator.
