This list probably isn't the appropriate place to get into an in depth
discussion, but I just felt I should correct a really common

The GSSAPI patches _only_ deal with authentication via already gained
tickets, and forwarding tickets to the remote machine.

Authentication via password is handled by the stock OpenSSH code. We use
PAM to handle password checking against the KDC, but there is code in
OpenSSH that can also do this. I'd suggest asking on one of the openssh
lists for more details.
