I just tried `sudo apt-get remove --purge munge`, etc., and munge itself
seems to be working fine. But I still get `slurmctld: error: Couldn't find
the specified plugin name for crypto/munge looking at all files`. Is there
a way to get around munge altogether? I am just testing on my local
machine, so I do not actually need any more special authentication.
