The return code is basically 0 for success or 1 for failure.  The reason 
could be many things (especially with SSPI, which doesn't really tell 
you much about the failure.. even the Windows messages are fairly generic).

I could look at adding other ones at some point... not sure how easy it 
would be to propogate it back to the user though.
