Bringing it on proper mailing list.

I very much doubt that continuous use of GSSAPI is realistic for anything
besides Kerberos and NTLM, where it is used for historic reasons.
NTLM is declared obsolete by Microsoft itself (you can find such statement
in their documentation), and everyone is suggested to migrate to Kerberos. 
In my opinion, it is safe to assume equivalence of GSSAPI to Kerberos.
