Honestly, for now I'm happy w/ it being a connectionstring option. It seems the most appropriate place for it to go. That does mean that applications may need to be modified to support gssapi (where they might not have to be for sspi since it's the default), but since we're going to keep krb5 support around for a bit there's time for those applications to catch up without breaking things explicitly for people migrating to 8.3. I'd also use that as an opportunity to encourage applications to expose the connectionstring to users as there may be things like this in the future where it's purely a library thing and the application doesn't have to know about it- except for the connectionstring. Thanks, Stephen
