if you make it portable [gnu autoconf], then samba can use it, and SPNEGO,
to implement CAP_EXTENDED_SECURITY [which uses SPNEGO to do SMB
authentication negotiation].

this will be part of the first stage of compatibility with NT5 domains
which use Kerberos-5 for authentication.

i will also help add an NTLMSSP authentication method to the GSS API
library [which includes the full set of authentication, encryption
(sealing) and signing functionality].
