FWIW, I also exchanged many e-mails with the earlier gsasl maintainer,
and he was about to add the NTLM stuff, but after that I never heard
anything again (although I don't recall sending any e-mails myself).

I don't care strongly here, I'm satisfied just sending bug reports about
things I miss.  Well, as long as there is someone as responsive as you
are in resolving the issues, of course...

Btw, perhaps we could discuss changing the GSS-API implementation that
gsasl use from libkrb53 to libgss0..  alternatively, providing a new
libgsasl-gss package for this purpose (although that would require
building the source twice).  I would find it very useful to be able to
use Shishi/GSS via GSASL.
