This is an intentional change. It is mentioned in the release notes,
though perhaps not too helpfully:
Make Kerberos connections use the same method to determine the
username of the client as all other authentication methods (Magnus)
Previously a special Kerberos-only API was used.
We should probably at least clarify this release note. Do you want
to make an argument that this is a fundamental breakage and we need
to revert it? If so, what's the argument?
