RFC: Kerberos client support

I'm guessing something like:

A configure option "--with-smb-gssapi". This would then make Samba return
the "Extended security negotiation" bit in the smbnegprot response. We then
need to process the "opaque" blobs that the client passes... I'm hoping
they're just GSSAPI exchanges, in which case it might be fairly trivial. We
then take the username, and continue as before.

I suspect it won't be anywhere near that easy. In particular, SMB signing
and DCE/RPC security are likely to be extremely awkward...

On a related note - the CVS server is *damn* slow. I've tried to pull down
HEAD three times and had it fail. Any thoughts?

As this may imply a partial or total rewrite of the passdb I'm
have you any ideas on how to insert this thing in samba?
