But you use your own custom modified Heimdal right? Any of those changes
help you juggle creds? I know you're not using KRB5CCNAME :-)

Still, I'm not saying kblin shouldn't use GSSAPI. I'm just pointing out
that it's a subset of SSPI.

I was thinking about doing this and the protocol part of it would be
very straight forward and easy to implement. But the compelling reason
for *using* it is for SSO scenarios and doing pass-through auth via
MSRPC is just out of scrope for Heimdal. Right now I'm just going to use
krb5_get_init_creds_with_password for users not logged on. But eventually
I will do it because I can do MSRPC (can pass-through be done without
