I recently happened across the GSSAPI implementation in PuTTY
(http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/) and I figured it
might be interesting to bring up.

It uses a similar approach to dynamically load the Kerberos support
library, but takes it a step farther and abstracts out the GSSAPI
support so that it can use
either MIT K4W or MS SSPI based Kerberos functionality (with a dynamic
decision about which to use).

The relevant code is here:
