Can you explain, independent of the idea of plugins, what behavior you
want the Kerberos library to exhibit?  The Kerberos library is typically
used by a system's login process, but does not control it, so there is
not necessarily a good integration point for announcing a login.  It's
possible that what you want is a PAM module.

Your question does point out that we could benefit from a central list
of pluggable interfaces for developers.
