I had a bit of trouble parsing that last bit. Are you suggesting that
we could get by in 1.4.x by simply hard-coding a first attempt with SSPI
followed by a fallback attempt without?
See, if we can avoid adding this runtime configuration option, my
concerns (at least about that matter) will vanish.
