Like Solaris, Heimdal one supports mechanisms that export either a dispatch
table or individual symbols. The former was necessary to support pseudo-
mechanisms or applications that need to link against mechanism-specific API,
although I suspect there might have been other ways to do this.

Also the Heimdal mechglue supports a bunch of the GSI extensions, like
set_context_option etc.
