renew should take arguments, pass them to kinit

Upstream bug:


renew expands to kinit && aklog, but with more magic.

Of those two commands, you can exert mostly arbitrary control over what aklog does by frobbing ~/.xlog, but there's no good way to control the parameters for your newly acquired Kerberos tickets.

I think it would be useful if any arguments that get passed to renew got passed along to kinit.

It would be even better if renew could detect the properties of your old ticket (lifetime, etc.) and use those as defaults for the new tickets.
