This the 3rd iteration of the remote authentication  / SASL patches
previously provided here:

 v1: http://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2007-October/msg00131.html
 v2: http://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2007-November/msg00005.html

This iteration has incorporate the feedback /bugs identified from
previous iterations. It also adds in an API for a callback to collect
credentials from the client applications, meaning username+password
based authentication is now also supported alongside Kerberos/GSSAPI.
I have also re-worked my previous PolicyKit patches:


To fit into the generic authentication RPC mechanisms I added for SASL.
The resulting incremental patch for PolicyKit is much simpler, and
integrates better with client applications.

Finally, I have exposed the authentication callback support to python
and prototyped its use in virt-manager as a sanity check for the whole
API style.
