Authbind has not been tested in Debian for many years, has it ever been tested 
in any other distribution?

The purpose of authbind is removed by the fact that SE Linux can restrict 
daemons which run as root.

I don't think that there is a good cause to have authbind policy in the 
archive and it currently doesn't work.  So I think it should be removed.
