I'm curious - on what platform is OpenSSL NOT available ?

And even more curious to see you defend that offhanded bashing of OpenSSL, a tool a whole lot of people (including me) depend on all day every day. If Postgres had the market penetration of OpenSSL, our lives would be a
lot different.  Have you got even a shred of evidence that GSSAPI is
more stable than OpenSSL?

Windows?  I don't do Windows, so I'm guessing.

If you accept that Microsoft's SSPI is a flavor of GSSAPI, then GSSAPI is more widely supported and probably more stable on Windows machines than OpenSSL is.
