Description of the krb5 DB plugin facility.
The krb5_aname_to_lname(3) function's DB rule is pluggable. The plugin is named KRB5_PLUGIN_DB ("krb5_db_plug"), with a single minor version, KRB5_PLUGIN_DB_VERSION_0 (0).
The plugin consists of a data symbol referencing a structure of type krb5plugin_db_ftable_desc, with three fields:
|init||Plugin initialization function (see krb5-plugin(7))|
|minor_version||The plugin minor version number (0)|
|fini||Plugin finalization function|
The init entry point is expected to call heim_db_register(). The fini entry point is expected to do nothing.
