It works. Mozilla 1.7.2, firefox 0.9.2, konqueror from kde-3.3 and the
gnome browser (forgot the name) have support for the SPNEGO extension
which is basically kerberos 5. For the Apache side one can use mod_auth_kerb

Now, regarding stability and reliability, I can't help that much. I installed
this on my local machine for testing and it just worked, but I don't know
how it would behave under higher load.
