Among other.. using NTLMSSP in a "packet" mode would be troublesome due to the

I don't see how you would run NTLMSSP in a command line mode in a sane manner 
without having to at least partially understand NTLMSSP, and it would make 
life uneccesarily complicated for the helper.

Raw NTLM is another question, and is best suited as a command line mode 
interface. As Andrew I do not forsee many applications needing a stream mode 
raw NTLM interface..
