I looked at that code, but it's not exactly what I was looking for. I admit 
that I haven't really tried to wrap my head around the example code.

Well, that's what I would like to implement in the long run, but currently I'd 
just try for SPNEGO/krb5.

My idea was trying to write an as thin as possible wrapper from SSPI to GSSAPI 
to not reinvent the wheel on that one. I'll detail this a little more in a 
later post.
