I believe that's the case, yes.

In general I agree, but I'd like to see builds for Windows which support
them and I'm not sure that'll happen quite as regularly. :/

Aside from that issue though, if we're going to continue krb5 support
(which I'd encourage unless we have some reason to stop) and it's not
too much effort (I get the impression it's not) to support both
concurrently, I'd really appreciate it. :)  I'm not aware of any 'funny
business' which would be involved in supporting them both at the same
time, and I believe Magnus is working on it.
