[python-gssapi maintainer X-Debbugs-Cc:ed]

Hi, Jeremy.

Attempting to import paramiko when python(3)-gssapi is also installed
now fails with an AttributeError:

  >>> import paramiko
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paramiko/", line 22, in 
      from paramiko.transport import SecurityOptions, Transport
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paramiko/", line 38, in 
      from paramiko.auth_handler import AuthHandler
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paramiko/", line 48, 
in <module>
      from paramiko.ssh_gss import GSSAuth, GSS_EXCEPTIONS
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paramiko/", line 54, in 
      GSS_EXCEPTIONS = (gssapi.GSSException,)
  AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'GSSException' evidently accommodates the possibility that the gssapi module
is absent altogether, but not that it is present but incompatible.  I
initially considered suggesting arranging to set

GSS_EXCEPTIONS = (gssapi.exceptions.GSSError, gssapi.exceptions.GeneralError)

in this case, but it looks like there may be deeper incompatibilities,
so it would probably be more prudent to punt altogether on
AttributeError, as already done for other specific exception types.

Also, you probably ought to version the suggestion on python-gssapi, but
I'm not sure what the minimum should be.  (1.4.1 is current, but for all
I know 1.3.x is new enough.)

Could you please take a look?
