One is per-system and the other is per-user...  I'd thought it would
be good to document all options in both files, but I agree it is a bit

This sounds better.

How about removing read-krb5conf, default-realm, realm-kdc,
server-realm, kdc-timeout, kdc-retries from shishi.skel?

It seems these really should be in the system config, I see few uses
for normal users to ever frob those values.  They would still be able
to do so, but there would be no comments in the file to help them.

Conversely, I do think these are useful to configure per-user:

I think the four above really are something that is reasonable to have
different settings for different users on the same host.
