And that's just one ssh implementation.  Has anyone
heard rumors of movement towards the "adequate"
brand of GSSAPI support in ssh.com's implementation?
I can't really defend the choice to use ssh.com, but in
practice it's significant enough to make it even less
realistic to call SSH2 a Kerberos option.
