Doing a little further reading and testing shows that the server would 
need to be extended to provide GSSAPI support even though the underlying 
authentication would be done using Kerberos.  Java has Kerberos support, 
but not the ability to "speak" it directly, only through the GSSAPI 
interface.

Phil Dodderidge claimed to have this up and working quite some time ago, 
perhaps he can share some more info...

Although I'm not sure people want GSSAPI support in the backend given 
the comments on adding SASL support here:
