Thanks for pushing that.  I've updated the branch with a new set of
changes.  These follow in the same pattern, making the code more
generic, but not intentionally changing behaviour.  This set of changes
introduces a new way to specify the gensec modules list.  

My hope is that once we make the use of NTLMSSP totally generic (ie,
just specified with a parameter rather than via dedicated functions), it
will be much easier to call other modules and even the SPNEGO we
discussed via the same, tested call stack.
