I didn't think the security.dll supported anything but NTLM...  MS
docs imply such, anyway.

The reason I used sspi and not ntlm is precisely because it supports
multiple protocols.  sspi is quite capable of negotiatiing a common
protocol for communication, so a kerberos enabled server should drop
to ntlm with an nt4 client, and do full kerberos for a win2k client.

It would perhaps be better to just change the sspi dll to
automatically negotiate kerberos if it's available on both the client
and server, and leave gserver to be MIT specific.
