OID gss_nt_krb5_name value?

GSS_KRB5_NT_USER_NAME from RFC 1964 is the same as GSS_C_NT_USER_NAME
from RFC 2744; it's a generic user name, not a principal name.  But
the string you were looking at is for one of the Kerberos-related name

Unfortunately, the naming is a little screwed up.
GSS_KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL_NAME is {... gssapi(2) krb5(2) krb5_name(1)} and
uses the C variable gss_nt_krb5_name.  There's also a
gss_nt_krb5_principal variable, oid {... gssapi(2) krb5(2)
krb5_principal(2)}, but that doesn't seem to be in the RFC.  Possibly
for internal use, or for the revised krb5 mechanism that never really
got off the ground, but I have to run and don't have time to look more
closely just this moment.  At first glance, it does appear to be a
binary format name, using the krb5_principal data type.
