A non-backward-compatible behavior change is going to cause a lot of
If I have things straight (and I'm not sure I do) then we are treating
sspi as a different type of auth method. It would be sane, or at least
explainable, to have a different default name for the different auth
method. I think a platform-dependent default would seriously suck,
and changing the default behavior for existing configurations would
break things. So Stephen's suggestion seemed plausible to me.
